Go up one level in this thread

- You misunderstood, Fruit 2.1 is in fact not re-using code from Toga. Fabien
has adopted an idea from Toga and implemented it in a different way.
- Even if he had taken the Toga code verbatim it would have been ok, though,
because also this code is under the GPL.
- In fact Fruit is an example where the GPL works very well and gives a real
benefit to the community. Neither Toga and possibly also not Fruit would be at
the level they have reached also due to exchange of code and ideas by means of
the GPL.
