Hi Marc, :-)

As I said, I do understand your concerns. But I'm wondering what Alex
might have to say about law and convention, and Internet flotsam and

What does one do when one finds a perfectly serviceable template but
cannot, in all good faith, find the author? Wouldn't it be enough to
have an attribution "Currently Anonymous" and to say briefly where we
found it? And if that template is found in a location that is
basically distributing "free" commodities (GPL, CC, etc.), then are we
doing anything really wrong in doing more work on it and passing it on
to the world?

After all, if there is a complaint, we can always remove it.

I do understand the concern for attribution of credit. But what about
the person that does maintenance and development on
previously-existing templates? That's work that goes completely
unrecognized, right? There's always a certain amount of work one does
for FOSS that simply goes without recognition...

I think you get the idea of what I mean. So what do you think? Any
comment from Alex?
