> Oh man, all these are our own files. Why did the authors opt to use GPL? Was it on purpose? Maybe I miss the whole point of GPL but to me it seems to do more harm than good. Extremism is not freedom. We are an open source project, yet GPL right now just sucks our energy.

70% of it seems to be by Claudio. But i like GPL.

I've not read all mails (i know i have a backlog), not sure if you guys 
are trying to change this, *I can say I have an open mind*, but, i 
prefer GPL.
If you allow me to write anything, i will write GPL.
