Ripple Gateware

I’ve noticed a couple proposals to make a ripple gateway, while I don’t have a problem with a service like this and adding ourselves to it, we should strive to support the most open and transparent ecosystem possible.

As far as the two proposals go, one of them is open-source, directly from some stakeholders in the community and the other is a private for-profit company which desires to charge us to create a portal that they will keep the source.
