All Omega Hanger Aircraft now GPL

Omega said that all of his projects are now opensource
Hey guys, I barely have any time to develop for flightgear these days. I'm just really busy with a lot of things in real life.
I've heard requests to license my aircraft under gpl, and I just don't want any of my work to go to waste. So, feel free to redistribute my aircraft/scenery under any open source license you want.
I'll hopefully be able to put in a flight or two every once in a while if I get time but I don't expect to anytime soon.
It'd be awesome if one of you can relay the message to the fg forum.
Thanks,
Naru

A link or at least something more substantial than just a quote would be nice. ;)

That is the most outstanding news in several days for FG

someone that still has good sense and good generosity!

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

It is a great piece of news, the FlightGear hangar will get bigger. I think it is early to use them, i haven't ever understood how to download them.

Massima- this plane is not "early to use them"- it is one of the best planes in flightgear, and now an official one! Stuart or whoever else makes the planes in default- consider making this included? I think the a330 by artix is too complicated, even for someone in FG since nearly 1 yr!

@legoboybdlp cool thanks!

EDIT: are you sure that webpage is correct? Looks like tons of ads and no content to me...

Actually I think its all hosted here: https://gitorious.org/~omega95

And since gitorious is shutting down today, people might only have hours to save those repos from being deleted. So I would hurry.
