Thanks a lot, but I wasn't really asking for details from Red Hat
insiders. I am mostly asking non-core people for ideas on how to present
this change of policy to people.
Anything legal or business sensitive is probably going to remain a
blackbox communicated from the counsel/project members to the community
in a abrupt manner.
That is understandable.
The project on the whole cannot act on community
consensus on this as compared to the other coding and development issues
since the laws a defy "common sense" in many occasions.
I also understand that.
If you have any
ideas on how to communicate better taking into consideration the legal
(litigation happy industry and region) as well as business concerns, I
am all ears.
I have absolutely no clue. My question is not really about "What
happened?" but about "How do you think we should explain this?" I'm
nagging or teasing for more insider information.
