 Should someone email legal-discuss or what's the correct process for this?

 If/when STDCXX ships to a large community of users their views may differ - At the very least
the FSF has clearly stated their views which gives *others* concern.  This point of objection
needs to be resolved and we appreciate your help in doing so.

Is this all about your point of view that even though Apache stdcxx
is designed as a library, esp as a system library, that GPLv2 programs
cannot use and link to it because the FSF says that the ALv2
is incompatible w/ GPLv2? And all this despite the fact that
GPLv2 makes specific accommodations for system libraries...

Is that the actionable item of which you speak? You want the
ASF to "verify" something in the GPLv2?
