Hi

This is not to start a flame but an attempt to fine
out whether or not some of the points made by Jim
Thompson is true.

I posted a message to misc at openbsd dot org (see
http://groups.google.com/group/lucky.openbsd.misc/browse_thread/thread/4739829dcb527e8e/9d15c656acfb771e?lnk=st&q=Supposed+%22reverse+engineered%22%3F+openbsd&rnum=1&hl=en).

Here are some of the responds I got so far.

This is all just spreading FUD. Just to make sure
people really
know the story behind OpenNTPD:

and a comment to Tims comment about reverse engineered
HAL in OpenBSD.

Wow what a pile of garbage!

Someone needs to read up on copyright law.  The same
someone might want to
spend some time in the law books as well learning how
reverse engineering
works.

This is complete hogwash described by someone who is
quite ignorant regarding
law.

Rob
