I have little hope of convincing dwmw2. I just want the records to show that we're trying to solve different problems, and that whatever solution he seems to think and impose on me won't solve the problem I'm trying to solve. A number of people got out of the previous round of discussions about Linux and Linux-libre with the mistaken impression that his proposed solution then would do anything to advance Linux-libre's goals, in spite of my attempts to show it didn't. I'd like to avoid a recurrence of this error.
Now, I don't want to turn this into a debate on legal issues, but I'd like to point out that Red Hat legal advises the Fedora project to refrain from as much as mentioning Free Software projects that apparently read on certain patents. That would be considered a material legal risk, with liability arising out of contributory infringement claims IIUC.
Now, baiting users towards non-Free Software, or even providing them with the poison, doesn't break any laws (except for those pieces of firmware for which no license can be found, that is ;-). It's an ethical and social issue. It's just good to see clearly where one's priorities are. I wish ethical hazards would get at least as much attention as legal ones.
