    SubjectRe: Article: IBM wants to "clean up the license" of Linux
    If Richard Stallman gets mad at the linux community for not using the term
    gnu/linux and decides to release a new version of the GPL that undoes its
    current meaning (and e.g. allows proprietary forking etc), thus affecting
    all programs currently licenced under the GPL, what could anyone do about
    that? And please don't say, "oh, he would *never* do something like that."
