Hi all!

Opt From: http://software.newsforge.com/software/06/02/01/1630225.shtml?tid=132&tid=25

Jeremy White, founder and chief executive officer of CodeWeavers, which develops a commercial 
product based on Wine, said a number of developers from ReactOS have contributed to Wine, but 
several have been banned from contributing to the project because of concerns about code they 
offered. This was not necessarily because the code included something stolen or illegal, but because 
Alexandre Julliard, chief technology officer for Codeweavers, reviews the contributed code and was 
concerned about what the banned individuals had claimed as their own.


Who was banned?

Code claimed as their own?

So all ReactOS developers are bad people and banned?

So where did the Wine kernel32 handle code come from? Wine test fails on Ros why does it pass on 
Windows and Wine?

Thanks for the slander,
James
