I have nothing against CDDL, or OpenSolaris, or your new operating
system, and I never said I did.   I simply point out that you may not
have fully grasped the consequences of grafting Debian code into your
CDDL-licensed system.

Again: please stop mixing these two subjects.  This discussion has
nothing to do with non-glibc ports in general; it is specific to your
particular non-glibc port.  If you don't understand the distinction,
then ask for clarification!

You really need to start concentrating on what people are saying, not
what you think they mean.  When it comes to legal matters like this, the
Debian community generally expects people to be quite precise in their
wording.  The sooner you realize this, the better this discussion will
go for you.
