This Week in devot:ee #19 - May 24, 2012

This week sees eight new add-ons, a new license type, and work being done towards fixing the “unsupported support forums” problem.
Recently Rolled Out
We added a Mozilla Public License to the available license types for an add-on. Hey, every week can't be a development all-star.
We're actively working on re-doing the support forums regarding when and if they're made. They're currently automatic when an add-on goes into the system, but we're re-vamping this system to only create a support forum if the dev is going use devot:ee as the support channel.
All of these forums are spam-magnets and the ones where the developer doesn't offer official support end up with dead-end threads and people confused as to why the developer won't answer their questions.
