I talked with Daniel yesterday. Basically the reason for this whole license 
thing is that there must be some garantees against the NFP falling appart. We 
hope there won't be fights in the board either, but in case such things 
happen, Daniel would be able to take the trademark, the GPL'ed source and the 
developers and continue the distribution. After the NFP has lived for a while 
( and has gone through several board changes ) this should not be necessary 
and the license could be given back.
