> what you think the CDDL was designed specifically for, is ... largely irrelevant to anyone considering porting CDDL code. Do you seriously believe this? Do you agree that the CDDL is incompatible with the GPLv2? If so, then don't you think that someone considering porting CDDL code to a GPL project had better consider whether his actions are even legal? That hardly sounds irrelevant! If there's estoppel that would allow the CDDL to be used with the GPL, do you suppose you share a link? Every communication from Sun that I've seen has very specifically avoided this. If Sun actually does want its CDDL code to be incorporated into GPLv2 projects, it would take only tiny changes. Since the GPL is older and more popular (http://freshmeat.net/stats/), one would expect that Sun carefully considered researched GPL compatibility. Even if the incompatibility is an honest mistake, then why doesn't Sun make the tiny changes required now to rectify the situation?
