Also I (Mr Travers) was named in the rant which has since been removed, so I feel like I should respond to one possible confusion.
The only email that I sent out was a request for translators (whose work was still licensed under the GPL) to clarify whether people could redistribute their translations with the software. I was never involved in hate-mail, and I said that it was Dieter's moral right to choose whatever license he wanted for his own code and that the other contributors should take this as an opportunity to decide whether they wanted their work distributed under this new license or not. The replies I got were about 50/50.
Mr Murtagh's email was more harsh but still not hatemail. His support account had been cancelled without warning or refund due to his participation in the project, and I do not assume that he was alone in that regard. He was upset and rightly so. But I didn't think he crossed the line in his email.
