Has anyone ever heard exactly what this "license issue" is?
What exactly is the problem? Who objects to making Aldor open
source? And what needs to be done to satisfy those objections?

??? Why not put it on the web now so everyone or anyone can
check it. It seems that every time someone hesitates just
because they think it might not be "ready", everyone ends up
waiting until they almost loose all interest. If it was made
available as soon as possible without checking every little
nut and bolt then other people can share in making it right.

I think there is some problem here of philosophy or psychology
that is not compatible with mass collaboration. :-(
