I wish this license thread would die. I'm really disappointed that
Chris would start a mess like this. I hope in the end it gives fruit
to something positive and tangible.
In terms of GPLv2 + APL2 compatibility. All we have is the views and
opinions of various sides. Nothing has been decided in court (afaik).
Until someone actually litigates this - we just have FUD from GNU.
Their opinions are probably biased more to scare people into GPLv3
than based on something they could win.

If you really feel strongly about this - maybe email SFLC or take it
to a more appropriate channel (offlist) or not here.
