Before the release of the code to the public setiQuest had to find all instances that conflicted with the GPL license they looked to release it in.
With the release of Open SonATA 2.1 setiQuest released the source code to the public under the GPL License. setiQuest has included "Ways to help." in their own documentation of the software. The source code can be found in setiQuest's GitHub repository.
Open SonATA is closely related to the setiQuest project.
