Hi Gary,
I suppose distributing Gramps under a different name is OK as long as the terms of the GPL is complied with. However, I am guessing that Gramps hasn't been forked and the web site itself doesn't give any indication that money is required in exchange for the software so I wonder about the motive. Maybe Gramps is being used as a lure to get people to install the 'other stuff'?
Exactly. And what makes things worse IMO is that we also send people to sites that advertize this sort of stuff. I mean, when you visit our sourceforge download page, you will probably see that that page is also loaded with 'free' software ads.

It seems to be pretty hard to stay away from things like this today, because these guys actually pay for some of our resources now.
