Perhaps we could have done better,but it is not the time to have lot
more confusions. Its today's urgent need to fight against issues of
atmost importance like Software patents. And So far we are having a 
good progress on the issue,and we should continue to fight. For that
we should understand ourselves the Culture that Swathanthra Software 
philosophy puts forward, and make the whole India to realize and fight 
for their Freedom, in a Collaborative way.

And aren't these kinds of moves making small hindrances to the fights we are already
doing against Software patents which is currently Lead by FSF-I in
India ?
