  6. Timeline:
  7.  
  8.   * 2011/6:
  9.     Netafp.com withholds source with a snotty open letter to try and force
  10.     consumer NAS device manufacturers into paying them for support contracts.
  11.  
  12.   * 2011/6:
  13.     They announce they have updates to the 2.2-beta4 release which fixes time
  14.     machine support for OSX 10.7
  15.  
  16.   * 2011/7/20:
  17.     I respond to their open letter. Via pastebin + twitter and through the
  18.     contact form on the netafp.com website.
  19.     http://pastebin.com/jzXWdCzJ
  20.  
  21.   * 2011/7/20:
  22.     I receive a response from Ralph Böhme <rb@netafp.com> saying, in part, that
  23.     the issue should be sorted out within weeks/months.
  24.     http://pastebin.com/YXjxEQT8
  25.  
  26.   * 2011/7/21:
  27.     I respond asking how they will let me pay for a support contract so that I
  28.     may have working backups. (No response received.)
  29.     http://pastebin.com/YXjxEQT8
  30.  
  31.   * 2011/7/21:
  32.     I find that netgear released binaries for their "closed" version
  33.     of this GPL product on 2011/7/20
  34.  
  35.   * 2011/7/21:
  36.     I download netgear's distribution which had no additional click-through
  37.     licensing.
  38.  
  39.   * 2011/7/21:
  40.     I respond to my inquiry regarding a support contract with a demand for the
  41.     GPL'ed source. Netgear, netafp.com contact,
  42.     netatalk-dev@lists.sourceforge.net, and gpl-violations@gnu.org are in the email
  43.     envelope.
  44.     http://pastebin.com/YXjxEQT8
  45.  
  46.   * 2011/7/21:
  47.     I submitted a story to slashdot with links to the original open letter and
  48.     pastebins of my email correspondence along with links to the netatalk-dev
  49.     mailling list archive posts.
  50.  
  51.   * 2011/7/21:
  52.     I receive a response to my demand from Frank Lahm <fl@netafp.com> with a
  53.     copy of the netatalk-2-2-0-p6.tar.gz which contains the source in question.
  54.     Off-list and with no other recipients of the email.
  55.     http://pastebin.com/MiWBbp7q
  56.  
  57.   * 2011/7/21:
  58.     I posted the received source to github and responded with all original
  59.     recipients in the email envelope with a link to the posting on github.
  60.     http://pastebin.com/MiWBbp7q
  61.  
  62.   * 2011/7/21:
  63.     I receive a request to remove Ralph Böhme <rb@netafp.com> from all public
  64.     postings to prevent him from having issues with his current employer who
  65.     apparently has terms against him contributing to open source projects or
  66.     receiving payment from other agencies. (Which is the case is unclear.)
  67.     http://pastebin.com/9QAmJL3L
  68.  
  69.   * 2011/7/21:
  70.     I respond that I cannot remove his name from the pastebin postings as they
  71.     were posted as anonymously not with a logged in account.
  72.     http://pastebin.com/9QAmJL3L
  73.  
  74.   * 2011/7/21:
  75.     Frank responds pointing out that his name was in the github commit.
  76.     http://pastebin.com/9QAmJL3L
  77.  
  78.   * 2011/7/22:
  79.     I acknowledge that I accidentally pasted the wrong contact as the provider
  80.     of the source, fix the commit message, and do a forced update on the repo
  81.     removing his name.
  82.     http://pastebin.com/9QAmJL3L
  83.  
  84.   * 2011/7/22:
  85.     I submitted a new story to slashdot with the updated information using
  86.     links to the mailling list archive where the github repo was posted.
  87.  
  88.   * 2011/7/22:
  89.     I awake this morning to find that they have taken their site down for
  90.     "maintenence" and someone has removed the github link post from the
  91.     netatalk-dev mailling list archives making all links in both slashdot
  92.     stories inaccessible
  93.     http://pastebin.com/gTMt315b
  94.  
  95.   * 2011/7/22:
  96.     I ask Frank why he has censored the mailling list archives.
  97.     http://pastebin.com/gTMt315b
  98.  
  99.   * 2011/7/22:
  100.     He claims no knowledge.
  101.     http://pastebin.com/gTMt315b
  102.  
  103.   * 2011/7/22:
  104.     I point out that someone has removed it.
  105.     http://pastebin.com/gTMt315b
  106.  
  107.   * 2011/7/22:
  108.     He claims that only the sourceforge admins have access to manipulate the
  109.     archives.
  110.     http://pastebin.com/gTMt315b
  111.  
  112.   * 2011/7/22:
  113.     I composed this timeline and uploaded the missing pieces to pastebin to
  114.     prevent further censorship.
