[opensource-dev] Third party viewer policy

I love the text only viewers. Would hate to see them disappear. 

How about SLIM? I realize that can probably be categorized as a separate
service that's not a "viewer," but you could also see it as a "chat only"

Could a third-party text-only viewer be considered compliant with 1h if it
matches SLIM's functionality?

Well there are many other issues another couple are :-

1h "Central to Second Life is the principle of shared experience. The
services we provide through our viewers, for example, our Land Store,
the LindeX exchange, and the Xstreet SL marketplace, are designed to
enhance Residents' shared experience. We may ask you to make changes
to your Third-Party Viewer if it disables certain of our services, or
if we believe it is inconsistent with the principle of shared
experience or otherwise negatively affects the Second Life user
experience. If we do, you agree to make the changes we request."

This kind of blocks text viewers as well, of which i author one, as
clearly a text only viewer does not share the same experience as a
full 3d viewer.

Also any one using mono with libomv has an issue as that cannot get
the adaptor mac address and passes a NULL mac address, in the past LL
have allowed a null mac address as they knew of this problem, clearly
now though thats a breach of 2c part i.
