The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Alright, listen, I want to make sure people know something before they start making forks to update the mod to 1.8. (*cough, cough* People are *cough, cough*)
This is a WARNING. I am not making any threats that I don't feel I need to make.
The mod is apparently not open source due to a bundling issue with the licenses. The source code may be available, but it is not open source.
I want to let everyone know that the mod isn't allowed to be updated and re-released without my permission. (Unfortunately, as an open source advocate, this isn't the position I want to be in.) I'm really sorry for anyone who has started working on it for the legal issues. As soon as I clear this issue up, I will be licensing the mod up with LGPL or MIT licenses to make up for the inconvenience and letting someone update it.
Again, I would like to formally apologize for the legal issues that come with updating cAPI. I'm very, very sorry.
