Hi all,

Why don't you remove your fax-sent license? If you want developers to use your API, make thing easy for them to download it. I'm sure lots of developers have chosen NOT to use openML only because having to download a pdf, print it and sign it... and then fax it to USA.

We aren't going to use openML just for that reason.

Sincerely,

Me.

I'm strongly agree, it is bad practice, to complicate things. Be simple..

This project seems to be going nowhere, have you read the licence? if you download it you cant even share it with your fellow developers... so its not really Open now is it. Its not accesable... and how can we write software for a api that we cant share?

We at the jahshaka project have been working with the Khronos group (even shared their booth at siggraph last year), Sgi and OpenML hardware developers and we cant even download the final release without signing the agreement which we refuse to sign.

Added to that, we cant even get openml compliant hardware to develop on and all the Khronos group seems to be focusing on is OpenGL ES.

Its been 2 years of empty promises... it would be great to see some progress.

process.

What should i understand by that? "Exploring other options...". I want to say: It cannot be so damn difficult to make the download public, or let the agreement be signed online. I really cannot understand why you chose this whole crappy thing. It's really blocking ones effort to use your library.

Always hate it when companies act in such half-hearted manner. Either they have no faith with themselves or the developers out there...

Had an idea though. Anyone got a copy of it?
Why not share it out?

Hi
I have the previous SDK--not the latest. But i don,t know that the khronos group permit me to share it with the members?
