Why aren't you releasing the source code to your work?

Me too. But from our discussion, it was clear that there are several

outstanding issues with your plugin and the way it works, that we cannot

accept into the core. I hope those get sorted out.

Since a while you are not even providing the source code to your patches (both

the Audio 3587 and the Klondike one), making it completely impossible for

anyone to even consider building them for themselves. This is not only a

license violation in each case, it also makes it harder for concerned people

to figure out what changes you suggest/require/wish to see.
