Not posting source means not sharing benefits

Posted by: gerardm on April 12, 2002 12:10 PM
When you post source, the many eyes will/might see. When you do not post they donot and cannot help the code. Evidently the Linows guys post to Wine so they contribute to their source projects. Not posting has one benefit, you can go on coding while the momentum is good. When LPGL allows for it, fine.

When the code does not come out, legalities may crop up later.
