Call for SAP to release Watcom C++ / Open Watcom to an Open Source Foundation (Apache Foundation?)

I’m hoping that SAP has the wisdom to relinquish control of the Open Watcom (aka Watcom C++) project to an actual foundation that deals with Open Source projects. Perhaps the Apache Foundation?

If you look at the Open Watcom web page (http://www.openwatcom.org/index.php/Main_Page), the project is dead. If SAP isn’t going to rebuild it into an actual product, then it should let it go.

    Where do you find that SAP owns/controls Open Watcom? I can’t find any reference to this fact.

    1. Open Watcom is owned by Sybase. Sybase is owned by SAP.
