I'm interested in wider consideration of the community norms for this use
case. Do you by any chance have a pointer to the archives of the discussion
of this use case as it related to the design and approval of AGPL (not just
at OSI obnviously as it was brought here fully formed)? I realise the
license was created independently of the companies abusing it, but the
consideration of creation of license terms ripe for abuse would obviously
still apply and I would like to study the prior discussion as I was only
involved in the GPLv3 process and not the AGPL process.
