If you'd like to write about this subject for Groklaw, would you please contact me? I would love
to have an explantion developers can understand why this language isn't to be feared. It was, I
understand, such fear that caused Linus to avoid the wording in the first place, and look at all the
issues that resulted from that.
You're a contract lawyer, so you understand what the wording means, and how little it means,
but to developers it can look spooky, and it is my belief that it matters that developers and
lawyers figure out how to communicate better to avoid unncecessary issues.
Hope you don't mind, Jon, and if so, publish it here. I don't care, as long as it is published. I'll
gladly link to it instead. Either way is fine with me.
