Possible Future Discworld Freeware Release
In short, we have all the approval needed to move forward with supporting the game and making Discworld freeware.
However, Discworld is _NOT_ freeware at the moment. It may be in the future, assuming all goes according to plan.
When this happens, the project will make a announcement in the usual manner i.e. website news item.
Whether the game datafiles release will have a DFSG/OSI compatible license remains to be determined.
