Potlatch/Openstreetmap going proprietary ?

A recent post on OpenGeoData blog presents Potlatch 2:
"Fully rewritten in ActionScript 3".

ActionScript 3 !? Wait, that means NO more access for free software users!

Linux Fund for improved OpenStreetMap support

Ever tried editing the free map of the world with Gnash ?
Surprise: it works !

Only, if you want to trace roads starting from satellite photos
you have to wait a lot for the downloads to complete, and in the
meanwhile Gnash is non-responsive making you wonder if it'll ever
complete or crashed...

Well, you can now donate for dropping that limitation :)
