-TechrightsBN/ I really don't understand where #mozilla is going. Seems they use the reputation of #firefox and its existing userbase (what's left of it) for goals that have nothing to do... even remotely... with the original Mozilla. This dooms the whole company. Mar 31 01:37

-TechrightsBN/ April in #techrights will be about lots of #epo #corruption and seeing that the anti-FSF coup is mostly over now (dust settling, media losing inertia, companies walking away from a defunct coup attempt) I think it'll be a great month of much crime exposed. Mar 31 01:37

schestowitzIt's ok, of course: I have no problem with the post. I'm actually happy for it, as it makes me feel my oppinion is important to others. So thanks.Mar 31 12:13
schestowitzA few notes, just as feedback.Mar 31 12:13
schestowitzAgain, just talking with you people, as the thing matters to me. But publish whatever you consider, I'm ok with it.Mar 31 12:13
schestowitz* Dr. Roy, please feel free to use my name, or my common alias "xxxxxxxxx", as I don't mind. And if you believe that's not a good idea, feel also free to keep it anonymous. Just know I'm not saying anything here I wouldn't say everywhere else. And edit everything as you consider: I just trust your criteria.Mar 31 12:13
schestowitz* Silly mistake: "placard" should be "pancart". IDK if that's the right word in english, but I mean "the cardboard sign that person holds in its hands". "Placard" looks like a typo, as it means something else entirely.Mar 31 12:13

schestowitzSomething struck me as deeply wrong about your post but I couldn't Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzarticulate it. After much pondering it struck like a bolt and it was Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzthe paragraph above that did it so thanks. :) Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzThe RMS thing is politics, that is why they want him gone, he won't Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzinject politics into the the FSF. And we must fight because we are all Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzin extreme danger. Apparently we all just assumed Richard Stallman was Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzimmortal and would always lead the FSF or we wouldn't have done what we Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzall did. We must save Richard's bacon long enough for everyone to fix Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzthe problem. Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzHang on for a brief diversion, the tale will get back on track. CoCs. Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzThey are annoying but can't impact usage. They can't be avoided in most Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzprojects now because too many developers work for corporations and would Mar 31 18:05
schestowitzbe fired for failure to demand them. Because Free Software licenses Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzdon't allow restrictions on field of use, they don't impact users at Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzall. If enough productive developers decided they didn't like the CoC Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzthey could easily smash it with a Libreoffice gambit. One way gate. Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzFork a new project site under a new name with a one line CoC sayin "The Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzonly code of conduct is be excellent and never propose editing this Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzfile, it is the only mandatory banning offense." The new fork can take Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzevery patch from the original but the original can't touch the new site Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzlest they accept code from people who haven't agreed to the standard Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzpozzed CoC. Checkmate, the second a critical mass of independent Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzdevelopers decide to go for it. Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzNow imagine Stallman is out at the FSF and somebody tries this. All Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzthey need do is release the GPL4, allowing CoCs, field of use Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzrestrictions and all the rest of the political nonsense be integrated Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzinto the actual license, impacting developers AND users. It was your Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzmentioning Mint's misguided (and certainly unenforcable) attempt to Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzimpose field of use restrictions on their users that got the thought Mar 31 18:06
schestowitztrain going. Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzIt is vital that as many projects as possible get to work NOW to change Mar 31 18:06
schestowitztheir license terms. Corporate dominated projects are probably already Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzpast the point where they can be saved. Be prepared to grab the last Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzavailable version under a sane license when the time comes, and as Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzevents are moving ever faster, it will come soon. As of now there are Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzonly three possibilities that are survivable. Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzGPL2, GPL3 and GPL2 or GPL3 at your option. No "or later" ever again. Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzBSD code of course has no defense when the corporate HR depts come Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzcalling with demands. Nothing to be done about that. Haven't had time Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzto look at the other licenses. Anything with an "or later" clause, be Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzwarned and pay attention to who you are giving unilateral authority to Mar 31 18:06
schestowitzrewrite the license to. Mar 31 18:06

schestowitzSo, when it comes to information regarding G 1/21, it seems that the public will have to content itself with a Communication from the EBA added without any fanfare to the EPO's website:Mar 31 20:20
schestowitz 31 20:20
schestowitzI may be mistaken, but this seems to me to be the one and only occasion upon which a communication from the EBA regarding a referral (and providing information on the deadline for third parties to file written statements) has not been published in the OJ EPO.Mar 31 20:20
schestowitzFunnily enough, a different development that occurred only one day earlier, namely AC decision number CA/D 3/21, IS reported in this month's Official Journal. As all will be aware, that is the decision to formally approve Art 15a RPBA. It is almost as if the EPO is trying to rush through the decision in G 1/21 and to do all that it can to avoid attracting the attention of the public to what is going on.Mar 31 20:20
schestowitzThis latest development might not provide conclusive proof of a conspiracy to use any means necessary to ensure that Art 15a RPBA remains in force. However, it makes it harder than ever to explain away the numerous, POTENTIALLY prejudicial developments in connection with G 1/21 as simply being a series of unrelated mishaps.Mar 31 20:20
