When I wrote to Sven about the GNU Classpath Qt peers, I was doing under 
the understanding that talking about the different FOSS Java 
implementations was OK here, in the spirit of "harmony" that is being 
pursued by the different project leaders.

I apologize if I started a snowball I shouldn't have started down the 
hill at everyone else gathered here.

I agree with Sven that the final word on licensing for any project is 
with the project leader. In the case of GNU Classpath, that's Mark 
Weilaard. But I disagree that anyone else should be discouraged from 
expressing their opinion, however flawed, on anything regarding 
Classpath licensing.

That's too totalitarian a world view for me. And it does damage to the 
encouraging discussion on licensing harmony going on. The licensing talk 
should not be held completely behind closed doors. I'm not saying it 
should be held completely in the open, but that some input from the 
outside can be valuable. Input from the community which would benefit 
from such licensing discussions, is and could be more valuable than it 
is annoying.
