16 I didn't follow the whole licence issue, nor I don't care that much
17 about that (I was just explaining what I know from the Internet). The
18 problem, as it seemed, is that you and Bloch staunchly refused to settle
19 down the issue somehow. Please correct me if it's wrong.
21 But I don't buy the "people that attack me is just jealous/trolling"
22 argument, sorry. Assuming good faith is always better. To tell "I'm
23 right and B is lying" is quite trollish too. To tell "I'm right, B
24 probably hasn't understood that..." is another thing. And trying to do
25 baby steps each in the direction of the other should always be strived
26 for. It seems in this case that both failed to do that. Personally I'd
27 have stepped down on licence issues if that meant more distribution for
28 my code, but I'm not a serious programmer so I don't know if it holds
29 for larger projects. However I'll have to review ye old flamewar to
30 understand the issue.
32 The problem, however, is that -being it your fault or not- that incident
33 somehow made hard for some people to rely on your tools. :(

39 Well, what does it mean?
