While I agree with your sentiments, there are a couple of issues. First of
all, nobody is using another's *source*. What is being done is incorporating
'methods and concepts'.
From a legal standpoint, source is copyrighted and methods are patented.
What has been done so far has not violated those standards.
From an ethical standpoint, we need to credit the persons who developed the
methods and concepts. There is every intention of doing so. If it's not been
done yet, it is merely an oversight and it *will* be corrected.
