Subject Re: Reasons for not using Github ...
Date Wed, 08 Mar 2017 19:07:07 GMT
Hi Hadrian,

Well if I have an Idea for a project and put my code to Github and eventually conflict with
a patent of another company. By committing that to a Github repo I could be involved in a
lawsuite. With Labs this couldn’t happen, is this not correct?
I know that officially releasing is not possible.

If this is not true, I should adjust what I tell people immediately ;-)

    That is incorrect and a moot point since one cannot release from labs@. 
    There is nothing to protect.
    It's a bit frustrating, because this seems yet another repeat of 
    conversations that took place multiple times. I suspect that I am not 
    the only one who gave up on the PMC figuring out what the differentiator 
    is or should be.
    My $0.02,
