>It covered 99% of the problems, and that's good enough for me. Sure there were some things for which GPLv3 was an improvement, but I would rather they had been covered by separate licenses
You mean such "minor" improvements like taking care of international law and not being US-law centric. Or increasing license compatibility?
For me GPLv3 is a clear win and I still wonder what GPL.next actually want to fix and if the author really think that this is worth license scattering?
I would think we have far more than enough free software license ranging from really simple non-protective licenses over weak-protective licenses to strong-protective licenses. Additionally you can get all of them with or without additional software patent clause. Where is the actual need for yet another license aka GPL.next?
