"I too like open source software, but not in the enterprise. This would require implementing GPL clients and servers within our organization who's authors have no responsibility or accountability for any security issues that were opened up as a result.

Open source is fine for some implementations. I may take a look at this in my spare time to get a better idea of what it's capabilities and pitfalls are, but in all likelihood this isn't something we're going to implement here for the reasons mentioned above anytime soon.

What is the best way to respond?
