Hi David,

on http://www.acornemus.freeserve.co.uk/scumm/scumm.htm you offer a 
version of ScummVM for RiscOS. Please let me state that we, the ScummVM 
team, appreciate any and all ports of ScummVM, including yours.

However,  you only provide binaries, no source code. ScummVM is 
protected by the GPL and as such you are required to publish any 
modifications you make to the source. We have repeatedly requested that 
you post the source code. I hereby repeat this request once more, in 
public. Not complying would be a violation of our license.

Personally I'd be happy to work with you on merging your port into the 
main ScummVM CVS if that's possible.. However, the current situation 
(only binaries available) is not acceptable, and we have to act on it 
(I do not like to utter any threats, and I hope it's not necessary to 
go down to that level :-/). Please publish the source ASAP on your 
website or another public reachable place to which you link from your 
web page.
