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

I totally disagree with the "it's in a public svn and LGPL" so tough attitude. The creator of something should always have first release rights. You want to "steal" what I worked on for a year to create then fine don't scream when I close the preview process because of asshats. I don't have any real problem with the GPL/LGPL and while it is "legally" okay for someone to do this I don't think it speaks well of the community to allow it to happen.
