A committee within the OpenSolaris community has been having a long discussion on whether Sun should dual-license the Solaris code, allowing it to be distributed under the terms of either the CDDL or version 3 of the GPL. That committee has now posted its recommendations
: no move to GPLv3 anytime in the near future. "GPL* licensing OpenSolaris would be yielding to a small vocal
minority of FOSS developers who use the lack of GPL licensing, purely
as a means of fostering FUD towards OpenSolaris and who will, in all
likelyhood, find some other workable mechanism to continue to foster
FUD towards the project.
