Re: or until the lawyers wade in over licensing.

This is perhaps going to be the most interesting development, who is going to send in the lawyers and against whom? and will this actually be in both the best interests of either the open source community and its customers/users.

Perhaps someone should be telling Stallman to add his voice to those calling for Oracle, as the majority licence holder in ZFS to simply make a decree changing the licence status of ZFS - just as the University of California did over BSD, and help the open source community resolve the incompatibilities between it's legacy licences.
