LinuxWorld: GPL 3 And The Linux Kernel Devs
The under-discussion GPL version 3 license is a bit of a hot potato. Some like it and others, such as Linux creator Linus Torvalds, do not.
In a well attended birds-of-a-feather session here at LinuxWorld, Free Software Foundation counsel and co-author of the GPL 3 draft Eben Moglen explained the current status of the license draft discussion.
He also engaged in a verbal sparring match with open source luminary Bruce Perens regarding Torvalds' participation, or lack thereof, about adoption of the GPL 3 for the Linux kernel.
"There is nothing about dealing with Linus [Torvalds] that turns my stomach."
