I'm a non-Wine developer but I've taken an interest in this debate since I
could possibly work on it in a commerical way and would prefer to see it
truly open for everyone.
Rather than debate GPL vs BSD license, first get a consensus on what the
*goal* and purpose of a license would be.
E.g., attracting commercial development, maintaining control, philosophical
Forget the philosophical and semantic arguments over "free", "open", etc. if
I was a member of the Wine group I would want to maintain control over it.
Using a *GPL style license would seem to insure more control over the code,
as opposed to a commercial third-party taking control and benefit from the
work already done.
