It was OpenSource under GPLv3, but then was taken down. This fork continues open development.B wrote:I don't think Magical Jellybean is open source at all! It's freeware, and related products are commercial?
Actually that even used to be the address for our project until about a week ago. But the owner of the rights to the follow-up product protested, so that the project name was changed from "keyfinder" to "ekeyfinder" just recently.supercoe wrote:Interesting, I found some info via google that Magic used to be open source but the links I find pointing to sourceforge http://sourceforge.net/projects/keyfinder/ don't work.

A big thanks to the author/s of Enchanted Keyfinder for keeping tools like this open source.

Just joined, yes. Wouldn't call those few changes involvement yet, thoughsupercoe wrote:You say "our project", are you involved in the development?
The decision was made by the project admin.B wrote:Oliver, that Sourceforge decision is ridiculous. I really doubt anyone owns a relevant trademark on "keyfinder" and if they've abandoned their open source project (I'm getting a "whoops, we can't find that page") why not let your group keep it? They could add a disclaimer or something.

supercoe wrote:Great tool but what does this fork do that Magic did not?
B wrote:Okay, thanks.
What's peculiar is that I could have sworn that the original software started as closed source. From a little googling it seems it only went open around 2008 or so...
Ah well, glad to hear of your fork.

I really really don't care what versioning system you use, though. "Just sayin'".
