There might be, but you have a good point: gentoo-dev might not be the best place for this kind of discussion. However we do not have a dedicated list atm, may be its the time to create one? Say gentoo-legal? We are big already and as an indication of this I see discussions related to legal issues coming up every now and then. Also it is my opinion, that we *should* be vary of [possible] legal issues. Sure it seems less inportant for thechnically minded person, thus a tendency to put such questions off. However discussing them timely (rather than waiting for bad things to come) can save us from some substantial grief further down the road... George -- gentoo-dev@g.o mailing list
