Re: Another GPL violation: Re: Minimalistic Build-Environmentforwin32 (~7.5MB)

ok - you are right.

Yes. :)

Threads like this will hopefully keep people bothering others on
mailinglists, they aren`t
even subscribed to and without doing some LITTLE effort to contact them
(BTW: I read that posting by chance)

On the rockbox mailinglist i used a VALID email address - and on my win32
sdk page is a VALID
email adress, too. It would have been no problem to have me contacted and
told me personally "hey - you don`t adhere to the GPL - please fix that".

Instead of that, i`ve been somewhat  "pilloried" on this mailinglist - and
that`s what made me
angry and my answers somewhat "defiant".
