his absolutism also causes people to see BSD as a "problem", a "social failure". If some people think that, they did not get it from me. I do not call BSD either of those things. I say that releasing free software under a non-copyleft free software license is basically good (i.e., not evil), but that using copyleft is better. recently we saw theft of BSD to GPL, and a large part of the GPL community thinks there's no problem with that, that the BSD community is being "petty" to make an issue out of it. I don't think it is wrong in general to relicense code from BSD to GPL. However, in some cases I think it is more useful not to do so, in order to contribute changes back to the original BSD-licensed project. If such an issue arises for a GNU package, and people think it is not doing the most useful thing, I will look at the issue and then if necessary discuss it with the developers. However, if such an issue arises for a program which is not a GNU package, I will not get involved unless the developers ask me for advice.
