The FOLK project uses GPL code, because that is what is allowed in the kernel and what is allowed under the licence FOLK operates under, on Sourceforge. So, what's the problem? The problem is that some patch authors are starting to notice FOLK and see it as a political threat, not a communal opportunity. In my opinion, this cripples the entire point of Free Software development. As the maintainer for FOLK, I would like to call on ALL GPL developers and interested users to stand by the philosophy they benefit from.
