If memory serves, you were the one who started that rumour.
I remember you claiming publicly that (1) you had a private
fork and (2) you had licenced Asterisk outside of the GPL
from Digium and had the right to distribute a proprietary
version if you chose.

While it is undoubtedly true that Digium does not secretly
maintain a fork, your company, NuFone is closely associated
on a business level with Digium, and you are as far as I
know the only person outside of Digium with commit privileges
to the source tree... 2+2 == ?
