(I changed the subject so people who don't care about license discussions
can ignore the thread.)

I've been wondering for a while about the fork that created ofset. I've
been figuring it's something akin to the 'free software' vs 'open source'
issue, where we're not pure enough because we tolerate non-free licenses
for useful software. Which is a shame, because many of us are deep in
the RMS camp when it comes to how we deal with software. It would be
nice to work more closely on some projects.

Is another reason for ofset the ability to deal with money? (seul is
completely apart from money, so we wouldnt be useful for channeling
funding to the right projects.)

What other parts of the manifesto do you disagree with?

Hoping to get some communication going,
