Actually they are open source (at least here's instructions for
getting the WDSCi v6 source)

I did not think those extensions were open-source - they are freely
available from SoftLanding on their website, and the product name,
description, and vendor (SoftLanding, of course) are all there on the site.

What am I missing? And when did they release them as open-source? Did
they? They are free and may have limited support from SoftLanding - the
extent of that is explained on the site, as I recall.

Ah, I see - on the downloads page they have both these extension and
Subversion under a heading of "open source". I think that's misleading.
None of the further description of the RSE Extensions speaks about being
open-source - the Subversion page does, and points to the
site where it is being maintained as open source.

So I believe the RSE Extensions are NOT open source. They ARE free
downloads courtesy of SoftLanding. The following is taken straight from
their website.

Product name: *RSE Extensions Plug-in
Product description: *This plug-in provides several utilities that make
it easier for you to work entirely within the WebSphere IDE: fast access
to spooled file output; the ability to view and respond to System i
messages; graphical source compare and merge editors for System i code;
the ability to edit data areas and display data queues; and a
perspective that lets you view two source-editing windows simultaneously.
Vendor: SoftLanding Systems (A Division of the UNICOM Group of Companies)

Except that they don't tell you where the open-source repository is -
that makes me believe there is none.

Hey all,

New to this product.  We are trying to obtain approval from the corporate gatekeepers for the SoftLanding RSE Extensions Plug-in for IBM Rational Developer for i ...

In order to allow this open source stuff into the world I work in, I need a bit of info.  John Zurich of Softlanding pointed me to this list.

My hope is that you all have access to the answers to these questions and that this source will still appease the gods that oversee the open source stuff used by my company.

Here goes...

1.  Open Source Product Name (Use the addendum to enter multiple open source components).  I believe that they want the names of the open source components used to create the function.

2.  Open Source Product Description

3.  Open Source Vendor

I'm not sure of the context for some of these questions, mostly because I don't know enough of this environment to even know the proper questions.  Those above are from the legal eagles.
