I still don't see anything in the about box or the oo website mentioning this.
And as was mentioned here, you cannot claim sole copyright.

Is this what you call attribution? Erasing every last mention of muse,
even in comments?

I received permission from Josh, the Fluidsynth and Swami author, to use
the fluidsynth logo, on condition of attribution in AUTHORS, where I added
his name.
But you have removed his name from AUTHORS. That is wrong.

I'm sorry but "Special Thanks to the MusE developers" in the AUTHORS
doesn't cut it. It sounds like we simply helped with a module or something.

Browsing, you removed my name and stamp from the top of at least one file:
README.effects-rack, and put your name there.
If I understand the GPL, you are not to remove such attributions, anywhere.
Yes Alex, *I* wrote that several hundred word essay, not *you* ,on how
to use the effects rack. That was after I spent 2 weeks fixing the rack.

Do you know who has contributed much of the thousands of lines in
the MusE ChangeLog over the past five years? Me.
But you wouldn't know that since you completely removed the ChangeLog.
So again, you have removed *many* attributions there, mine and many others
who worked on MusE. I would never do that.

What is this shining piece of software you 'professionals' make?
Where can I buy a copy so I can call you up the same day, and tell you,
quote, "it sucks", and demand changes, and you will do it the same day,
for free? Really, I'd like to know. Please tell me what it is.

Yes, only you know how software should be. Let us all bow down and do things
your way.

I try very hard to accommodate all requests.
But a group of developers pestering me to fix dozens
of things within mere hours or days due to some 'urgency', is sick.
Not one single patch contributed to us. Nothing.
Why don't YOU spend five years of your lives learning the code?

Do you care that I just finished the soloing system, as you requested?
I clearly marked all changes to help you guys, even after the fork.

BTW You owe Orcan so much gratitude.
He personally converted many thousands of lines of MusE code and UIs to Qt4,
while you guys lurked on the side waiting for us to finish.
Without him, OOM2 and MusE2 are nothing.

Tim.
