Greg wrote in to send us more RMS clarifications on the GPL/Plugin conundrum. "Message-ID: 199805170813.CAA05995@wijiji.santafe.edu. I can include the entire message if you prefer, it was sent to gnu.misc.discuss Basically he said he was thinking only of programs which take an existing GPL'd program and turn them into plugins for a proprietary program. He didn't intend to say writing free plugins for proprietary programs like photoshop would be bad. " When this pops up on DejaNews, someone wanna send in a link? In any case, I'm glad to see this clarification on the issue.
