RMS has stated his opinion that it is free. Not that it matters since it's still not free in a manner that is GPL compatible, and while KDE is planning to change to a non-GPL license, they haven't yet and Qt 2.0 isn't out yet. FWIW, I will be in perhaps as little as a few days posting my suggestions for changes to the QPL which fix some holes we found together, should quiet anyone who has problems with the current license, and as a consequence of the rest, probably will be GPL compatible. (I hope.) Troll Tech may or may not like the changes, but when I'm done figuring them out, I will make what I have so far public before asking Troll Tech to consider it. And yes, the DFSG2 is evil. I'm doing this with help from other developers and even some non-developers because it's RIGHT, not because Ian wants to make the current draft non-free all of a sudden. Whether or not this was his intent, it LOOKS like it was to anyone who doesn't know he's wanted to make these changes for the past 6 months at least. I still disagree with the changes and plan to vote against them if it gets that far. -- Show me the code or get out of my way.
