How could Mr. Webbink confirm or deny that someone claiming to be "an adviser to a key MEP (Member of the European Parliament) told a private FFII mailing list" anything?
However, if someone with credibility *did* make such a statement that long ago, I would have expected to have heard something about it by now. Why would the FFII quietly sit on such a thing? Add to that the fact that RH has absolutely nothing to gain from software patents and absolutely everything to lose, and the fact that RH has been staunch in its position on software patents, and Florian's accusation simply makes no sense.
What does make a lot of sense is the idea that Florian is in a snit, looking for revenge, and is slinging mud at RedHat. It's an age old story, given new life in this age of personal blogs.
