May be I the only one to notice the :)  which I have problem to understand since for me it announces that COG may not be open-source.
What would help teleplace to believe that open-sourcing it would be a win-win situation?
	A bigger community of contributors ?
	Making sure that the truck factor does not touch them in case elliot is called under other horizons?

software is closed?
