First of all I don't understand this page at all. What are the numbers?
Perhaps Daniel misunderstood it, I don't know.

Furthermore, this page below that Brent just made unfortunately makes it
sound much simpler than it is.


It doesn't really matter if we get Apple to change their license. Apple
only owns a small part (I have heard the number 20% - accuracy unknown
but you get the point) of current Squeak and they can not change the
license for the rest. And who owns the major part of the rest? Have a
guess. And do we really want to knock on that door? Personally I would
say no.

I would be much more interested in investigating sublicensing staying
within Squeak-L.

PS. I also have an old thread with a license FAQ draft I once wrote
collecting dust. Should polish it up and complement it with the facts
that we have learned this time around - there were a few eyeopeners -
like for example the simple fact I outlined above. And then we should
put this on minnow IMHO. Brent, if you are interested - could you help
me out sorting through it all?
