Hi Oldak,

well ok, you are right, then employee the limewire coders (in the background) for yacy in wiki sytle and cspace in java integrated, and we are done, then limewire is free, to implement yacy for themselves without any relationship to wikipedia. As Nobody knows, that limewire Sam coded the yacy wiki search p2p engine with cspace-java, as all is open source, limewire can use it as well without wiki branding.
