Moglen Celebrates the Increase in the Chocolate Ration

Eben Moglen blogs about the GPLv3
[] and what a
wonderful guy he is. But I’m not going to get into a GPLv3 vs. GPLv2 vs.
anything else debate, since I’m a BSD/Apache guy and don’t really care
what the GPL crazies’ drug of the month is. However, I do object to this

yet again, that the Apache Licence
[} is not compatible with the
GPL [], despite assurances
to the obvious distaste of the Apache Software Foundation, is not on his
radar - despite the fact that the ASF is a client of his company.

applies to the ASF. I think not. In fact, I think it will be a cold day
