Dear list,

Can we please keep discussions to

a) their technical merit
b) something related to IBDI

Posting that politics are off-topic then continuing with
lines and lines of political commentary, IMHO is
not productive and spurs it further.

Speaches/Commentary regarding GPL vs. Trustware vs.
Closed source IS relevant to IBDI so far as it
relates to developement of Interbase/Firebird.

List founder or not, politics are off topic and this still is not
an USA-only list. Being a founder you (should) be an example.

When you mean GPL, please say GPL, don't say Open Source.

About national attitudes, just some perspective:


Have fun,
