Thanks Greg (and for your time overseeing the FDO development programme),

If terms and conditions of distribution have changed in the last year then
that's fair enough - complications of Open Source development using closed
source and licensed APIs and SDKs.

Jackie Ng, who is a stalwart, obviously provides updates (fixes and and
third party / security), RFCs and build provision for MapGuide with FDO as
part of the process.  So there is an FDO build out there and I can get it
via the MGOS downloads.

Autodesk have been a massive supporter of the project and with the
technology embedded in so many products it would be a shame to loose key
stakeholders.  They certainly get some resource back from the community (we
have also sponsored updates to raster and Oracle connections as projects
that have gone into the common code core), probably proportional to size!

Maybe FDO/MapGuide will have to be without ArcSDE until a license /
third-party solution can be found.
