Well, I think you should avoid the term 'not cooperate'. That only
looks negative. We're not under pressure to act, are we? Just state
our goals and priorities. If their goals are different froms ours,
nobody can blame us. Moreover, I think we should emphasize that each 
and every part (including plugins and documentation) of KDevelop we 
release will always be free, and consequently every program derived
from GPL'd code must be distributed under the same conditions.
I'm not sure whether they have understood that message ("It's not 
clear at this  moment whether the plugins  will be open source or not").

Ok, but try to be more polite than me :-)
