We’ve always said we intended to make IPF an open format, and that we would do so when we felt that we, and the format, were ready. It’s taken longer than we had hoped, as these things do, but we feel the time is now right.
We now have to decide what license to use, and we thought it best to have an open discussion between us, and you guys from all viewpoints, to come up with something that we can hopefully all be happy with. The link to the dicussion is here, but before you go off and contribute to that, we would really like for you to read this article written by someone else, which explains things pretty much as we see them.
Please remember, this discussion isn’t about IF we open it, its about HOW we open it.
We look forward to hearing from you, and of course, we look forward to making IPF open!
