Hi Jonathan,

It's very good you wanting to "donate" your project to the open source
community, and yes, there is a demand for that, because any large company
needs replication of data! In my projects, for example, I tryed a lot of
replicators and made the decision for one that is freeware, bu if i could
choose one opensource too, it would be better.
