I guess a lot of packages from sarge are made from gnu projects that

Hey Guillaume, take it easy, man. Most people agree that software
patents are ridiculous but you can't stop corporations from trying
everything they can to increase their shareholder value. That's their
reason for existing. Corporations are like liquid - they will seep in
everywhere, trying to gain power and monopoly and maximized profits. We
know that, you know that, here and in the US.
Maybe in the US they're more accustomed to it and I'm sure some would
have shifted their mouse to help, but if you're going to go waving
pictures of chairman mao, you ain't gonna impress anyone anyhow (thanks
John Lennon). You obviously just went about it the wrong way.
I tried to register myself on the German anti-software-patent site, but
failed - I can't remember why, but if you need help or support, you need
to make it really really simple for people to give it.
