Very good point.

While this might be an important debate to have at some point, I'd rather not have it now as I am focusing on the release testing.

I agree with Daniel that the sources should be *really* free for all to use as they see fit but I cannot take the time now to properly research this to my satisfaction. After the first of the year I can. Also note, Kevin pushed GPL only as a means to get HP to make it available to the world. I propagated it only because I was lazy. FWIW, in reviewing the original hypermail code, most everything has been rewritten, command line usage, parsing, setup, language support, html output/format, link conversions, etc.)

Now back to software improvements and testing....
