Re(1): When open source projects close the process, something's wrong

This is the kind of stupid attitude which leads to projects closing up and making it a pain in the ass for outsiders to contribute. The whole "You released it under an open license, so now I get to do whatever the fuck I want with it and screw you!" attitude simply pisses people off and makes people wonder why they're working to help such losers.

Honestly, if the Oxygen designers had used a closed-up SVN repository, how many of you same idiots would be screaming that they're not really developing open-source style? It seems to me what you really want is not for developers to develop the FLOSS way, but to allow you to rip them off and pre-empt their releases for your own personal benefit.
