LSA on Freshmeat
LinuxPosted by sengan on Sunday August 23, @05:02PM
from the does-not-seem-to-get-the-point dept.
Freshmeat is carrying an editorial by Ian Nandhra of NC-Labs, one of the founders of the LSA (=XYZ). He chides slashdot readers but does not address their main concern: the notion that the LSA will own IP, and that the definition of LSA standards is not truely open to all (LSA can refuse to renew a membership), as is traditional in Linux. He does not seem to realise that many readers agree that a standard is necessary to maintain the diversity of Linux distributions -- but neither at the price of diversity nor at the price of abandonning open methods.

As the LSA's own collection of trophies shows, we're being watched. Please no flames.
