In order words, the bounty description is contradictory.
No it's not, you're mixing up copyright and trademarks. GPSoft is promising two licenses: One for the code, which will be released under the APL, and one for using the trademark, which is only valid for 68k builds. You can still do with the code whatever you want (as long as you respect the APL), but if you're compiling it for anything but 68k you can't call it Opus Magellan.

Think of the official Firefox vs. OS4 Timberwolf vs. Debian Iceweasel.

Will do monthly donations (when possible) on this bounty I think.
Last month $20, yesterday $60...

Please help us free the sources of this great program!

From a MorphOS user's perspective, it would certainly make much more sense to add whatever feature to Ambient that you miss from the Magellan 2 WB replacement. And my question remains - what features are those exactly?
Dual Lister Windows for one.

Built in FTP directory.

I dunno... EVERY FEATURE!

Actually, you might want to read the entire discussion. The proposed bounty terms that I objected to - as found in this discussion thread - said:

Quote:
Use of the source or trademarks (on) any other OS is strictly prohibited
Based on my remarks, the bounty terms were adjusted to what is on the Power2People website and are now in full compliance with the AROS Public License...

You can have as many listers as you want, or at least probably a lot more than you will ever need.

Will be there in MorphOS 3 (encrypted even)...
