The licensing model would mean that I as an independent contributor
wouldn't be allowed to use the test suite, right?
So I had to obtain a licence for the test suite in order to do
(unpaid I might add) _open source_ development???
This is insane and not acceptable. I for one will quit my work if
this is how it turns out. I am not going to ask somebody to do some
testing for me without having the chance to do it myself either -
step through the code and see what happens and so on.
I don't mind somebody doing tests on code that I intend to contribute
- fair enough. But I need to have a means to do the tests on my own
before giving something out.
