Gopher clients legal and ethic status
uGophy now is a part of ZX-Uno project.
For me it’s important step and point. I’ve begun this project especially for ZX-Uno.
But now I have plans about porting it to other Speccy clones with different network hardware.
My first port now sepparate project – spec-goph – clone for spectranet devices(that’s works even on speccy 48k) with separate code base.
My next step – make ZX Spectrum Next version.
It doesn’t require separate code base(just another UART driver), but I think it’s important keep link with my original target.
It’s important(for me) ethical aspect of this project.
You may agree with it or not, but my point is hard as a rock.
ZX-Uno community made very much for me, and this my way to say “thank you” to all folks from ZX-Uno community.
I know about some prior bad feelings between the ZX-UNO and Next community.
But ZX Spectrum Next users are not bad people(I wish).
They doesn’t need some “punishment”.
As engineer I’m solving issues and making some solutions. I have myown opinion, but I’m trying don’t infringe upon users(whom doesn’t make anything bad to me or ZX-Uno team).
What about licensing – I’ll keep GNU GPLv3.
If you’ll make fork of it – please make mention that’s it based on uGophy that’s part of ZX-Uno project.
Project moved to ZX-Uno’s github repository. All updates will be here.
This post is my opinion, ZX-Uno Team may not agree with my points and opinion.
