Why do you need it to be open source? – slhck Apr 28 '12 at 10:36
Maybe they want it to be open-source? – grawity Apr 28 '12 at 13:28
Well, that's not a real reason is it? If you need something open source, there's got to be some reason for that – maybe "supporting open source community" or trying to modify the source code. Whatever it is, it'd just help to know why in order to make it easier to address a specific problem, and thus provide better answers. Not to mention possible XY problems — or do you disagree with that? @gra – slhck Apr 28 '12 at 15:05
