with the comments about lack of compatibility between GPL versions and
as-yet-unwritten OSD principle bounding license proliferation.
To my mind, this is one of the true ideological differentiators between
and "free SW." Open source is about growing the commons; free SW as
by FSF & RMS is about creating a maximally free class of SW, and
utility of that free SW with the existing FLOSS base for the sake of
growing a commons is a non-goal for them.
This is an opportunity for OSI (IMO) to make the point that while
are OSD-compliant licenses, there is still a valid ideological
between free SW as defined by FSF and open source.
