Does sourceforge share revenue from bundeled installs with projects?
If you say "no, I don’t want you to bundle your installer with my project", they will do so anyway (look at GIMP), and you get nothing.
in other words, in my view, a project that opts in to revenue sharing with crapware bundlers who are known to sometimes distrubute malware, is behaving unethically.
so now i don't trust filezilla dev's in general, even if i get an package signed by my distro or whatever. very dissapointing. worse still, it makes projects that didn't opt in suspect in my view, simply because they are on sourceforge; if i can't find out whether they opted in, how can i know any project isn't taking kickbacks?
i really hope i'm missing something here....
If it bundles crapware, and the maintainer listed on sourceforge.net is sourceforge itself, they didn’t opt in.
Otherwise they did.
