Although on the surface the disagreement was over the busybox license, I think the real underlying problems were of a non-technical and non-licensing policy nature. My personal opinion is that the (now former) maintainer was in some cases lacking in civility and took many issues personally. If a different approach to interacting with the contributers to busybox had been taken, I think the project and all involved would have been better off.
Unfortunately this type of situation is not rare in the world of FOSS.
