When open source projects close the process, something's wrong

People seem to be missing an important point here, Crispy didn't just take all the Oxygen icons and release them without accreditation. Heck, he didn't just release all the oxygen icons WITH accreditation, he released a mix of different icons ("primarily Crystal Project and Oxygen") and released those, hes also made additions and changes and even changed other things such as the font used.



Most people here seem to be acting like he just did a straight port of Oxygen and abandoned it, hes been making changes, adding bug fixes for things that crop up and trying to improve things all around. Also please spare me the "freshness" part, they still aren't even final..so how can he reasonably spoil the "freshness" when they are publicly available and will likely be changed in any case?
