Agree with your points.

Consider the PHP gateway. It’s being developed right now. When it’s a full blown gateway,
some users would use it directly as their gateway. If they want some new features to be added,
they can do that and they will be able to commit it to the main repo, so that other users
can use those features too.

Basically, I’m just pointing out that the PHP gateway has the potential to become a project
of its own, with its own contributors, as a framework for new gateways.

I agree this need if we are opening up to contributors (which I do not think is legally complaint).

Ofcouse, I doubt any one will commit without a consent on the mailing list, but thats the
