I hope the developers will agree to somewhat change the status to more open, really begin thinking a Carbonite continued where we can add to a repository would be a very good idea if the developers aren't fully behind this aging product.
So long as they maintain no one can touch it, we can't do a carbonite continued. The developers control it reguardless aging or not.

I offered to buy the source, I have not had an official response yes or no yet but I was told there is a very low chance of the original source being released publicly as they wish to keep it out of blizzards hands (my guess is the fued dates back to the new addon policy which everyone guessed at the time was directed at carbonite), but that's just a guess the only word I got was "to keep it from them".

parts of carbonite are all datamined, and they have tools to get that data (developed by haavok is my understanding). But you don't need the tools, I was able to do my updates without them... it just took time to figure out the forumula's they used.
