foo_scheduler - maintenance question

Hi,
I am currently running a 64bit version of Scheduler,
having doubts whether it can be upladed here.
Does anybody know if Andrew is still around?

Well there is no license on the github repo and that means you don't have permission to do anything with it. How strictly you want to follow that is up to you but sharing here isn't advisable.

That´s what I thought too. The only chance then is being able to contact and ask for his permission.
I am noticing now the component discussion, the offcial repository links to a 404. I should have been posting there instead.
Will also try a pull request to the repo, hopefully he can review the update,
Thanks

And here are some interesting discussions on Stackexchange:
1. use of of 'unlicensed' github code in research paper and
2. What can I assume if a publicly published project has no license?

Don´t want to give the wrong impression, I am not impressed by a lack of license at Github. This could mean the author is happy about the free update.
But in contrast, I wonder about the copyright notice in About Scheduler.
There might be some calculated ambiguity in there...   :) 

Hopefully @andrew_smolko comes along and sort out this mess.

@andrew_smolko, I have just found this post...

Andrew, if you do not plan to maintain this plug-in further, would you please consider making the source code available?
Sure. See the first page, there is the link to the source code. To compile you need MSVS 2005, WTL and boost libraries.
Hope someone will continue developing
The only thing - please, notify in source code and in a binary distribution that the initial author of this plugin is me - Andrew Smolko.


If you disagree about any terms of the attached distribution, please get in contact, and I will be glad to apply any changes to make it compliable, or remove it altogether in case I misunderstood that old quotation.

... thank you so much for developing this great component,

Best regards

Change log:

- Component renamed 'Scheduler Mod'.

Thank you so much (for not caring about totally irrelevant -in some cases- non-existent license limits)
