Community obligations

Yada, yada, yada. We've done this, we've done that. We're doing great work here! Why are you attacking us?


They're not attacking you. They're asking you to live up to the obligations that come with the code you're using. You have distributed binaries based on GPLed code. You're not offering to distribute source, as the GPL clearly requires of you. Why not?


If you're using GPLed code and not distributing source, you're not part of the community; you're a parasite on it.
