Status of the GPL effort?

It seems that it has been over a month since the GPL effort page as updated:
http://entai.co.uk/angband/osi.lua

So what's going on?

Everyone who is easy to find has been found, and I haven't had time to scour the 'net again for the remaining people, though I do have two postal addresses to write to people at. I don't expect Angband to be fully dual-licenced until maybe next January.

You did get the cc of the response from Mogami?

I didn't, no... Please resend. That moves things a step closer, then.

Could you send it to Leon too, if you haven't, please? Mogami is one of the very few names we still need for Sangband.

Sent. He included all and any roguelikes, so Sangband is covered.

Thanks. Angband OSI page updated accordingly, and a bunch of other people who didn't actually write any code weeded out.

The situation right now: I have two people to send post to in the US. 12 people still to find; six of whom are there soley for main-* work, and three of whom are there for pre-Ben code (2.5.0-2.6.1) which may or may not still be relevant. That leaves three people with strong claims to the game code left (Prfnoff, Ed Cogburn, John Rauser). Even then, it should be easy to rip out Ed Cogburn's close-game patch and write a new one from scratch, and I basically rewrote John Rauser's monster list patch to use the Sangband method in V SVN.

Well, his e-mail is in maid-x11.c: Denis Eropkin (denis at dream dot homepage dot ru)
Have you tried that?

There's an e-mail link in the name at the top of the page.

Ross E. Becker:
Well, the main-win port in Sangband has been rewritten and should be GPL clean.

Prfnoff:
I found some old page, from 2000, that gives his e-mail as prfnoff at thecia dot net.

I have an email for him: jmr@visi.com. He just hasn't replied. I'll try commenting on that blog...

Nope; I only came across him the other day.

I'm not sure where he was contacted -- Tom Demuyt did that.

So I'm told; I don't like having everything contained in one window. What's the point of doing that when the SDL port does exactly the same?

That has not been his email for a long time. He's quite reclusive... I emailed someone I know is his friend a while ago, asked him to pass on a message for me, but Prfnoff never replied.

I don't see an email link anywhere. Perhaps you could help me out?
