Vladimir,    (01)

Ref my earlier query about Dieter Jenz work:    (02)

Since your 2003.10.23 post characterized it as being "Open Source", I 
was trying to get a clarification as to whether it is truly open 
source (since I did not see the same being identified on Jenz's work 
or his website - then, of course, I may just have missed it.)    (03)

The term "Open Source" and "Free Software" have well defined meanings 
and connotations -- ref., respectively,    (04)

   "The Open Source Definition" at:
    http://www.opensource.org/docs/definition.php    (05)

and    (06)

   "The Free Software Definition" and "The GNU General Public License"
  & http://www.fsf.org/licenses/licenses.html    (07)

It is quite possible that Jenz's work is not "open source" work
(unlike  software like Protégé, which is available as free software 
under the open-source Mozilla Public License (which is an open source 
license -- see: http://protege.stanford.edu/download.html). That 
clarification would be useful to the community.    (08)
