Thought out commentry on the CDDL

For those who are interested in reading a well thought out, presented and balanced discussion of the CDDL, it is difficult to go past the writeup by Pamela Jones at Groklaw.

I am not saying this because she agrees with the license as being the right choice for Open Solaris (she doesn’t), but her writeup is particularly well done and certainly worth reading in full.

Pamela is a self confessed GPL-girl, and was disappointed that we did not choose the GPL as the license for Open Solaris. That being said, she was appreciative of being involved in addressing issues with the license and, … but hey, why not read the article yourselves?

Simon Phipps has also written a well considered response to Pamela.

As Simon puts in his response… Solaris, Tequila and Tolerance.

  2. It seems people have gotten past complaining about the CDDL, which is good, but they are now complaining about the patents. This must be those seven stages of acceptence that psychologists talk about.
