Enterprise Unix Roundup: Schwartz Extends Olive Branch to Linux
It all started last Tuesday, when yet another debate on the merits of applying the upcoming General Public License (GPL) version 3 to the Linux kernel was raised Ã¢â¬â again Ã¢â¬â on the Linux Kernel Mailing List (LKML). For those who don't follow the LKML, it's a high-volume list where Linux kernel developers discuss and debate various technical aspects of the ongoing process of coding the kernel.It's also where much kvetching goes on Ã¢â¬â the general ranting and raving that sometimes occurs when you put geeks in close proximity to one another. In other words, while all of the discussions pertain to the Linux kernel, not all of the discussions are technical in nature.
