Why are you sending this crap here? the inclusion of binary
firmware/microcode in OpenBSD is considered acceptable so long as the
license allows for redistribution.

maybe you could read first what's it about...


perhaps it would have been better for advocacy@.
i was just thinking about sending it in as well,
it's quite interesting to see what others are doing
with other open source licenses.

there is so much crap on this list, an honest OT
once in a while can only do good.

indeed.  it's condemning Torvalds and the main Linux kernel maintainers
for not being careful about firmware licenses.  the Keyspan license in
particular is a big trap that people probably aren't aware of.

probably, as it shows how OpenBSD is more careful about protecting
your freedom than Linux.
