Rafe Colburn takes issue with some of Noah Grey's claims.
[Y]ou may not sell or in any way make a financial profit from this program, either in original or modified form.
Which doesn't really fit very well with clause 1 of the Open-Source Definition:
The license shall not restrict any party from selling or giving away the software as a component of an aggregate software distribution containing programs from several different sources. The license shall not require a royalty or other fee for such sale.
If Greymatter had been truly open-source it's fairly likely that I would never have started writing Catkin.
To be fair, inaccurate claims that a program is open-source are pretty common, and I'm sure that Noah Grey sincerely believes Greymatter to be open source. I just wish that people would use the term a bit more carefully.
