I have been developing a fork of WP over the past few months for a number of reasons but mainly to improve it to something that I wanted ‘out of the box’ it’s been a valuable learning experience and I have been a regular visitor to these pages and the trac.
However it appears some people have decided that I am trying to ‘rip off’ WP and have not given any credit to the fact this is not my work but simply a dreirative.
In an effort to defend myself I posted the following reponse:
Sorry but I was waiting for this type of response, where am I trying to rip off WP? I have made it clear that WP is derived/forked remixed etc from WordPress and have given credit both on my site and within the code, I also contribute to the WP site/docs etc.
This is what GPL allows for if I have got it right as in ‘freedom’ I have also provided all the source code I have not in any way attempted to say I have created this from skratch. I have simply used it to create something thats a little different from the original.
The code is GPL which means I can do this without any problems I am not trying to ‘pass off’ this as my own work, have any of you actually looked at the site of SF pages? “
Can members on here let me know if the general feeling is that I am trying to pass off WP as my own because if that the case then I urgently want to put it right, I have been a big fan of WP for a number of years and dont want to create any bad feeling howver if people feel I have overstepped the boundaries of the GPL and the spirit of free sotware please let me know.
