Martin - I feel what you have done in releasing the source code of Templot is brilliant. However, that said, I would not really want to see the two versions, Templot2 and open Templot, diverge significantly. You have said you intend to continue development on Templot2 for the time being. I note the comments about change control on Open Templot, but have you considered a mechanism for picking up useful additions from Open Templot and incorporating them in Templot2 and thereby effectively creating a new open source version of Templot so that the best is incorporated in whatever is passed over as open source when you finally decide that you are no longer able to support Templot2?

Many thanks for raising these issues, and I fully agree the release of the source code is a huge huge benevolent act for which Martin should be applauded for.

I seem to have taken on the mantle of admin* for the OpenTemplot resource so I would like to take the opportunity of addressing some of the issues you raise. I hope that this links in to the way Martin is working with Templot2. :) . I have no intention at all of changing the fundamental structure of OpenTemplot. I'm a great believer of - "if it ain't broke then don't fix it", I have no desire to replace the existing structure. So in maintaining the OpenTemplot source code I can easily generate a simple text file showing the changes made. It is a single file that identifies line deletions/modifications/additions and for a man of Martin's calibre I'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult for him to incorporate the changes into Templot2. 

In fact in an ideal world I'd hope that we could replace all of the commercially licensed units in Templot2 such that OpenTemplot fully matches Templot2. It may be a utopian aim but if that situation does occur then OpenTemplot may well in the fullness of time be equivalent to Templot2. 

If you have any other questions then please post them - I'm sure that either myself or Martin will answer to the best of our abilities.
