Segment 0 (00:46)
- Bradley didn't want his words compared to the Ayn Rand's quote from an
interview with Phil Donahue where she said
I'm not going to die, it's just that world will end. (02:54)
- Bradley discussed the reaction to on 0x36 that occurred in this identi.ca thread. (04:20)
- Bradley and Karen discussed the LWN article, GnuTLS, copyright assignment, and GNU project governance. (11:15)
- Bradley pointed out that every other copyleft license allows for
relicensing under newer versions automatically (i.e., they have an
automatic -or-later ), and Karen asked whether Sun's
CDDL does. Bradley checked later, Karen was correct that CDDL's
later version clause (Section 4) is similar to the GPL
policy. (23:00) However, Fontana wrote to us on IRC to say
CDDL's license upgradeability clause is not entirely like GPL's. The GPL states that if no version number is specified, any version can be used. CDDL does not say this; it seems to assume that it will always be clear what version CDDL code will be distributed under, whereas GPL seems to assume otherwise.
- Bradley mentioned the interview he did with The H Online on GPL enforcement. (41:57)
