The solution to this debate seems very simple to me, as a bystander. Nikos has already stated he
does not want to work on GNUTLS under FSF, but continues to use the GNUTLS name. FSF should send
Nikos a formal announcement (in the name of FSF not just RMS, no offense) of not being allowed to
use the name GNUTLS any more. Nikos should start a fork of GNUTLS and operate it under a different
name in case he wants to continue working on the project. Nikos can announce his fork on GNUTLS
mailing list to make all willing developers to move onto his project. Now we just need to execute
this chain of events.
As a side note, I find Werner's accusations, as written on his blog, of FSF not defending its
rights in case of GnuPG copyright violations very serious. When a copyright holder transfers their
rights to FSF they also transfer their rights to defend against copyright violations. I sincerely
hope thes goodwill has not been and will not be abused by FSF.
However, thank you to all members of this debate of the great work you are doing.
