A valid concern, probably, but one anybody developing GPL code could

I would see no problem on that. Even although new code was not GPL,
existing code would have to continue being GPL. So it would take not
much time for a fork to take place.

Talking about 64 Studio: I think I subscribed to the mailing list and
I reported there a problem while installing it. Since then I've seen
no activity in the mailing list. Zero messages. Is it like this or
simply I have subscribed incorrectly?
I moderate a spanish forum on Linux audio and people there love 64
Studio, even although there's Musix and their developers talk spanish!
So I find a bit sad 64 Studio community is not more active.

I don't see it either.
