Bah, it's interesting to see that Adam has appealed to others when he
has lost with the original developers.
For some background:
And other messages from Adam since then on the linux-usb-devel mailing
In short, I approved this code (I'm the usb-serial maintainer) as Linus
said it was ok, and Keyspan's lawyers said it was ok, and it was based
on a ATM driver currently in the kernel. Keyspan wants to do the right
thing, and once we all agreed to the wording, everyone was happy. That
was over a year ago!
Now Adam is worried about the legality of this...
Alan Cox also told him why it is legal, but he didn't like that :)
bah, do I need to join debian-legal to fight this battle there too?
