You know, all you really have to do is release your source code. Perhaps someone will be nice enough to contribute a Makefile.

I agree, we made some mods to Ruby to add some memory tracking extensions. We made a Windows binary available and source code for the changed files (1 file) and for the new files (2 files) for anyone either wanting to incorporate this into a future version of Ruby (I hope so) or build their own Linux/Mac version.

Also, given that Lua is open source and Idle is built on Lua I can imagine not releasing the source will generate a moderate amount of ill-will and releasing the source will generate more good will.
