|A number of people have alerted me in the last 24 hours that a Microsoft project called Sandcastle, located on Codeplex, used the Ms-PL and called itself “open source” yet never posted the source code. This is unacceptable and represents a violation of Microsoft’s Open Source policy. I take it extremely seriously. I have directed the project to be unpublished from Codeplex immediately, including removal of the project’s use of the Ms-PL.

Isn’t it ironic that Microsoft picked Sandcastle as the name for their documentaion tool? Now, like a real sandcastle, it’s disappeared in a wave of indignation from the OSI community.
