Please read all carfully, you mis-interpreting whole thing again.

If you want more developers in the team, simply "yes or not" is not enough.
Explain how else to know more fact about current implementation without
reading source and waste time on this. On that way I may want to look in the
code and try to find way to optimize the process. You and Vreman constantly
close the circle ("dead loop").

In any event, you cannot say that compiler and linker algorithm is optimized
enough for each platform.

You also keep to ignore insulting and insinuations wrote here. If this is a
way to prevent any suggestion and problem reporting, this mailing list
should be declared "for developer only".

That is not the point here. Please read Peter Vreman's and my own posts
carfully again.

Unless you calculate number od Delphi developer world wide.
I doubt that anyone will skip the lucruative oportunity.

And I doubt any contributor will work just for credit, except perhaps
students or retirement people.

That is the  law - any unvalid document is worthless. Contributor have all
right to requre fee after licence changing and without valid contract, this
is just another "Perpetuum mobile"...

In any event, we will see in the near future what will happend.
