"Oh, and I don't mean to steal your thunder, but don't expect a sudden

Yep, I definitely don't expect to change the world :) But being a climber
seems to go in hand with being a pedantic problem solver so there does seem
to be a high number of IT types in the climbing world. And luckily BMC
members seem to be pretty excited about The BMC in general...
But, yeah, part of my thinking is to see how much interest in contributing
there'd be from BMC bods.
pragmatically speaking, other than being offline, that'd have over a
well designed mobile site"
The benefit of a mobile site would definitely be that you could do the
majority of the processing on the server and not the device. Certainly on
the emulator I found it pretty easy to get out of memory errors if I was
hoying around data without thinking about it carefully (and who wants to
think carefully). But on balance I decided it needed to be offline because
then the feature set can grow into an app that can help those unfamiliar
with a particular location.
I read GPL as being a "good" open source license... in as much as people
can use it however they want but if they change it are supposed to release
those changes. Is that broadly correct?
