Thanks, Jonathan, for hitting the nail on the head. The major question facing us is not whether the DRM provisions or right or wrong. The question is whether the DRM provisions are worth the division of the community that will almost certainly result.
Unfortunately, this is Richard's license, and in my humble opinion, the "Year of Debate" is a dog and pony show.
But the fact that the situation is tense enough to elicit an outburst from you (I've been reading LWN for years, and your comment above *IS* an outburst... for you. That's a compliment, BTW.) speaks volumes to me.
This new license version is poison to the community. We can't afford it.
