Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris This morning, at the OpenSolaris Governing Board (OGB) meeting, the following was proposed and unanimously resolved: "The OGB is keen to promote the uptake and open development of OpenSolaris and to work on behalf of the community with Oracle, as such the OGB needs Oracle to appoint a liaison by August 16, 2010, who has the the authority to talk about the future of OpenSolaris and its interaction with the OpenSolaris community otherwise the OGB will take action at the August 23 meeting to trigger the clause in the OGB charter that will return control of the community to Oracle."

MySQL have community, and if Oracle tries to kill MySQL, forks will take over. There are already few forks like MariaDB, Drizzle, XtraDB... but nobody takes notice of those because Oracle is currently behaving ok and not trying to kill MySQL. As I said, GPL makes dictatorship to be benevolent, and if dictator is harmful to the project, then project will fork away.

Also, I don't think that copyright assignment policy is bad by design, but some companies are abusing it.

As for Debian interpretation of CDDL..? What issue are you implying? One with cdrtools, or one with sunos port?
