We have build many extensions to improve the functionality of MediaWiki. 
It is for
Enterprise use as Knowledge management infrastructure. The name of the 
extensions and additional
functionality is Wikibox Blue. The software is propriety.

It can be hosted as SAAS

Today there has been a request if automatic signing of thread is 
possible in the discussion page.
This is standard functionality in WikiForum. Which can be used in the 
talk namespace.

But it is propriety software. So it can not be used.

My question is here : Please convince me I have to make my propriety 
software open source.

With some conditions :
*I decide if I make Wikibox Blue Open source
*I decide when Wikibox Blue will be Open source
*I decide on which conditions Wikibox Blue will be open source.

If you respect these conditions please try to convince me I should do 
it. Keep in mind it is a
mayor step for me and my company.
