Allen, how can you, with a straight face, ask people here to come

with, that was setup as a fait acompli, marketed as the "natural

effectively competing (by how the proposal reads)?

I don't really want to debate most of your points because (frankly)
some of it is true. Arguable to some extent, blah blah blah. :-)

But the one point that I'm curious about: how can you say that Apache
"removes rights from people's contributions"? As a developer, you
still own your code. You can do whatever you like with it. Apache
doesn't take anything from You.

Did I misunderstand you in some way?
