GPL-3

This is GPLv3 on SourceForge now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.4.164.217 (talk) 19:30, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

James Kass has now come out of seclusion, and stated that the Code2000 SourceForge project is indeed his project, and that Code2000, Code2001 and Code2002 are now licenced as GPLv3 -- see this email to the Unicode mailing list. I guess we can put update the article accordingly now. BabelStone (talk) 20:29, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
That e-mail sounds like another forgery to me. This particular style and form of English is Wikinger's, I'm pretty certain. Fut.Perf. 21:02, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
You're probably right to be cautious. The email is (or was) James Kass's, used on the Unicode mailing list up until 2006 (e.g. this one). The style of writing is less convincing (the old JK always used plain text mail, the new JK uses html mail; the old JK always signed himself "Best regards", the new JK does does not use any closing greeting), but if it is not the real James Kass, can someone have hacked his a/c, or do ATT recycle old, unused accounts? The latest changes to the Code2000 font of SF (version dated 2011-12-22) are also rather odd (adding an unencoded character at U+037F, but only in one of the cmap tables). At any rate, there are still enough doubts not to change article yet. Damn, why can't we have CU on emails. BabelStone (talk) 21:17, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Adding a "capital yot" glyph at U+037F "As New Year gift I included both 037F and 03F3 in this font to appease all classicist needs" fits in with Wikinger's Modus operandi. BabelStone (talk) 21:32, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Intriguing. Account recycling would be my guess. In this mail he mentions that he is going to leave AT&T; then two months later he uses the address thunder-bird@earthlink.net instead, which indicates that he went through with the ISP change. Of course, he might have changed back, but such a move seems a bit unlikely to me. Also, for what it is worth, it seems pretty clear that whoever now writes the mails from jameskass@att.net has a native language which lacks articles. Alatius (talk) 23:00, 3 February 2012 (UTC)
Try to register AT&T account abroad, you will get "Registration not allowed. You must have a U.S. based IP address to register for an att.net email account." So if somebody doesn't have AT&T internet connection, or lives abroad, then he is cut off. 66.116.153.91 (talk) 08:24, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, Wikinger always loved using open proxies. Like for instance this one. Fut.Perf. 10:04, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

I do not know what the rules on SourceForge are, but for my part I am satisfied that the new licence has not been put forward by the creator of the font. This should be conveyed to the Sourceforge project. -- Evertype· 19:59, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

The Code2000 user on SF has been deleted now, and the Code200X font files are no longer available for download from the site, although the SF project is still there. Wikinger is some sick bastard. BabelStone (talk) 23:02, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

This was yet another sock IP of the long-term banned user who's been obsessed with this article for years, and that's exactly the reason why this article and its talkpage will continue to be protected. Fut.Perf. 16:58, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
