The question under debate is not the contribution or intentions of the left
party. Here we see a movement built upon guaranteed freedom of contributors
being abused by Novell. The entire turmoil arises because of this abuse of a
movement. And now look who all are fighting - the constituents of a
community which are supposed to collaborate and share.

Reminds me of the innumerable people vs state struggles elsewhere where
people and state fight pitched battles against each other, just because some
development-crazy entreprenuer sitting in some remote part of the world
wants to bring in a dubious project - and enjoys watching the street-fights.

Developmentalists just became smarter, so lets be more cautious.
