Don't bother. The original post is a troll. It has been carpet-bombed
(according to the headers) to

  debian-user@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
  debian-project@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
  linux-japanese@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
  linux-laptop@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
  linux-lugnuts@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
  linux-next@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

And judging by that it has been cross-posted to even more,
just piecemeal, so to not raise red flags in mailing list
protection software.

I mean: the original topic is interesting, controversial and
all, and there's a lot to learn about licensing, governance,
communities and many other things.

It's even legitimate to grab this opportunity to discuss that
topic (as some have done upthread).

But don't expect aconcernedfossdev to answer to anything.
Heck, I doubt that (s)he has even the bandwidth to read a
significant fraction of the ripples (s)he has started on
those 6 mailing lists alone.

This behaviour is highly destructive and I think it shouldn't
be rewarded. I propose to y'all to start a new thread on
grsecurity if there is any interest in the discussion (the lwn
article mentioned upthread is definitely worth a read).

Cheers
