So, I guess... GPL code can be put into a BSD project without any
Well if that is that case... why not just fork the whole of any GPLv2
project and make it one of the BSD licenses.
Wow, I now have PeRfEct Profit PLAN!
1. Fork (hmmm another term might work well here) all of project
with gnuGPL* licenses to be some BSD licenses or even better
2. Fork BSD projects and take them private...
3. Sell *OS* and make it wildly popular
I never realized how wonderful Forking could be. And it fills in the
usual step 3 "..." with something anyone can do.

Active Directory in much the same way that the Saturn V is a competitive
product to those dinky little model rockets that kids light off down at
the playfield. -- Thane Walkup
