re: Should Dictionaries Be Free/Open? VIEW POST

  • If it is free/open; will it be contributed?
  • If it is free/open; will it be more used?
  • I personally think real important things here are not only funding, but also fighting for popularity, as well as maintainability. (and fighting for quality employees.)

I think it is much harder than source code to get contributed. And even if contributed, having it higher quality will probably requires full time curation, and funding.

Also, more funding might also mean better R&D.

Don't forget that owners, as well as their employees also need to live, outside contributing to the project itself.

I can see Tatoeba project as partially a failure...
