But if necessary, we will add fixes and improvements. You can of course merge these back into your version, and you also can contribute newer versions of DrGeoII to Etoys. In fact, I hope you will :)

It's okay to ask nicely for that. But it would be as much of a burden for all Etoys developers if *they* had to check two places.

No way. We have to be able to modify any part of Etoys as needed.

I don't think anyone intends to do big changes to DrGeoII. But I do expect smaller ones as Etoys evolves, that should be simple for you to integrate back into your version. And of course you can always submit a better way to do something, if you think what someone else changed was not right.

And, +1 to what Andreas just wrote.
