He is also violating the license grant, Courts would not be fooled by his
scheme to prevent redistribution.
The license grant the Linux Kernel is distributed under disallows the
imposition of additional terms. The making of an understanding that the
derivative work must not be redistributed (lest there be retaliation) is the
imposition of an additional term. The communication of this threat is the
moment that GRSecurity violates the license grant. Thence-forth
modification, making of derivative works, and distribution of such is a
violation of the Copyright statute. The concoction of the transparent scheme
shows that it is a willful violation, one taken in full knowledge by
GRSecurity of the intention of the original grantor.
Why does not one person here care?

(Note: last month the GRSecurity Team removed the public testing patch,
they prevent the distribution of the patch by paying customers by a
threat of no further business: they have concocted a transparent scheme

entities) are defeated) (This is unlike RedHat who do distribute their
patches in the form the rights-holders prefer: source code, RedHat does

Okay, I'll bite. Fedora, as a matter of policy, only ships one kernel
variant, the upstream kernel. We have never used the PaX/grsec
patchset as it is fundamentally incompatible with other security
mechanisms we use in Fedora and breaks userspace without concern. So,
the whole matter of what PaX/grsec do is pretty much irrelevant to
Fedora because we never shipped it.
I'm sure there are people who are concerned about this matter, but as
a project, Fedora is not really involved in that mess.
