I doubt that anyone would want to work on something that has only been released without having a license to do so.

People have worked on it before.

Where are their releases on non-anonymous servers?

No one has made any major work on it. I am offering a custom build on Github. It can be obtained by going to https://github.com/Z...era-custom-12.15.zip.

Just another ping that the code itself is not OSS.  I like OSS, and this kind of thing as far as projects based on code that wasn't released under that licence gives the whole community a bad name, IMO.

Just further to Wraith's comment: The Presto Engine is proprietary software and not open source.  A huge amount of repositories containing the source code received DMCA Takedown Requests by Opera, and were subsequently taken down (on GitHub & BitBucket).

Zero3K, I would genuinely not be shocked if you received a DMCA for openly hosting illegal content on your GitHub account.

It is my belief that this should no longer be linked on DC as it goes against pretty much everything this community stands for and puts the reputation of the website at risk.  I will be seeking to gain approval to have this entire thread removed from the forum, or at the very least have all links to the repositories removed.

On second thoughts - I'm going to lock this topic until mouser makes a decision on the above request.

If you have any issues with this you may contact me on IRC or via PM on the forum.  Alternatively, you can also contact mouser directly.


TOPIC LOCKED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
