We’ve talked about that possibility from the beginning, so yes. Open-sourcing the tools right now could be more of a distraction than a help. It wouldn’t serve GWT users if we took our eye off the ball by starting lots of discussions about the plumbing of GWT when we want to be focusing on making GWT the best it can be for developers. We’ll periodically revisit the question as GWT evolves a bit more.
I would think that many more developers would consider using GWT for their client projects if they had adopted a BSD or Apache style license.
