Hey, it’s on GitHub. Anyone can see, anyone can fork, anyone can modify. Just to formalize this stuff, Gitmaker is under the Artistic License 2.0 – not only to piss off Richard Stallman fans, but also because the GPL v3 is ridiculously restrictive and paranoid. So no soup for you, Stallmann. It’s probably a good thing too, since we know soup and beards don’t mix very well.
