Default AROS clarification

From the AROS Mailing List: "Since there has been some confusion, here is some reliable information about the relationship between AROS and MorphOS.

MorphOS wants to provide an Amiga clone and they need some code to fill gaps in their emulation (for example, parts of Intuition). They asked us if they could use our work and, being an open source project, we "allowed" them to port parts of AROS to MorphOS.

This is exactly the same what we did when Haage&Partner approached us whether they can use our Colorwheel gadget in OS 3.9 which we "allowed", too.

I say "allowed" because that is essentially what we want them to do :-) AROS is meant as a test laboratory to develop new technologies which might prove useful for the next versions of the AmigaOS. We do this independently of Amiga Inc, MorphOS and H&P but always with the goal to provide them with something useful as well as providing adventurous Amiga users with something that feels quite familiar.

So AROS and MorphOS have not "joined forces" or become one project. MorphOS just uses part of our work which is what our work is meant for".
