I would consider it unfair to all true free software developers to take
the donated money and buy up a non-free application just to make it free
software (again).

However, that does not mean that we won't support the gpgtools
developers to drop their need for a license fee (or whatever this is)
and help them to keep on developing gpgtools.  There is one prerequisite
for any such action: They need to communicate with the non-Mac
developers which means to discuss things at gnupg-devel and use for GnuPG related problems on OS X.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
