I agree that this is bad news, but a major good-faith effort should be
made to get the authors to release under DFSG/OSD-free terms before
forking a version. Perhaps they do not realize how much they are
potentially losing by taking this approach. I'm going to do my part
and write them; I'd like to see some prominent names if the free
software community do so as well.
