A report from pgCon 2013
Little things that matter in language design
you forgot about gpl-violations

In other words, it is true that AVC v. Cybits is the only news on gpl-violations.org since 2008. So it looks like not much is going on.

But yes, the project is up and running and we've been doing enforcement all the time along. There's a maximum cap of 10 cases in parallel at this time, to not stretch the thin resources even thinner. The total number of enforcement cases ever since gpl-violations.org has started is certainly beyond 200 now.
Armijn is doing a great job in running the operations, as are other people who are actively contributing but not publicly visible.
I wanted to have at least an annual report on the site every year, but even that didn't happen either. It's pretty depressing if you work 12-14 hours a day, don't take weekends off, not even christmas, and still every day you never find even remotely enough time for all the things you want to do.
Let's see if I can get that report together, but if it will happen, it will probably not happen anytime soon, sorry.

I'm curious if Tim is correct in his assertion that there is this huge difference in how the two organizations work and what they demand for cure.
