started a subthread about multiple copyright holders solving
proprietary relicensing issues (or, in his view, lack
thereof). I complained
that @fontana shouldn't have started that subthread in the meta-thread
for the summary itself.
He disagreed. Anyway,
I think the upshot of this discussion is
that @fontana is more
concerned about proprietary relicensing than I am, which means he
must be really concerned, because I'm very concerned.
- @fontana is
interested in etymology of phrase

to point out the

- Harmony debates continued:

the difference between Canonical, Ltd. and the Canonical

had a rather odd
conversation with @pchestek. (I am still at a loss of
fathers' sins she's talking about; I presumed she meant
that preferring to avoid

situations is a sin. “Avoiding lawyers” would certainly
be a definition of

comfortable about the metaphor, or considering poor use of a trademark
