"On Monday, April 5, 2004, as part of the Shared Source Initiative, 
Microsoft releases the source code for the Windows Installer XML (WiX) 
developer tool to SourceForge under the IBM Common Public License or 
CPL. The WiX project is the first Shared Source Initiative to go 
"public" on Source Forge rather than a Microsoft site. It is also the 
first to use an externally created “Open Source” license."
