Agreed on all points! I hope for harmony we can build consensus to use
distribution terms that are both acceptable to the GNU community and
projects which need to be able to be used in larger works distributed
under the GPL and to the Apache community and projects which need to be
able to be used in larger works distributed under the ASL. At the same
times we must certainly attack the larger GPL/ASL issue. And I do hope
we will be able to finally solve those since most of them are just legal
technicalities and misunderstandings/misinterpretations (blown way out
of proportion imho).

Cheeers,

Mark
