I guess the operative word is "Port" that means rewrite of the
original code. Any moron can go back and compare the code and see
where it came from. I did add a comment that it was a port from wine.
With the next cycle in the mix I will commit the proper header for the
Using the word "audit" could get you kicked from the project, we
consider that word to be inappropriate and vulgar. This word is used
to create panic and distrust in FOSS protects This type of fear
mongering has been known to kill development in projects like ReactOS.
Please do not use this word in conversation or in written form. When
coming in contact of this word, sacrifice two live chickens and one
whole male goat before the next full moon. This will assure a good
cleansing and keep code weevils from breaking in on the morning of the
full moon. Apply a ring of salt around your personal computer space
and make sure there are no broken lines. Once all these
countermeasures are in place you can rest assure that no code weevils
can harm you.
