Hi Alexis, 

as also Eric pointed out that decision sounds more than reasonable,
however, i am still very curious to know the argument of Aeroo's inital
contributors not to include it to the OCA? Is that exactly what the
block post will be about ? I am curious especially for scientific
purposes here (i am researching Open Source and OS movements since 2007
basically), so more insight would be very much appreciated 

Kind regards
