I don't know. I'd like to have a centralized copyright structure so
that we can move it to a foundation (in the ever-nearer future) but
that still involves inconvenient paperwork. Not to mention the fact
that copyright is the only enforceable form of attribution, and I think
it's unfair that so many major contributors don't really have a
signature on Twisted in any significant way. With BSD-licensed
software, the possible problems with the license are so small that it
seems unlikely that disparate copyrights would cause a problem...
I should really talk to a lawyer about this, and to a few key
contributors. I have a feeling I already know what some of them are
going to say ;). The lawyer I discussed this with last time has moved
on, and the other intelprop lawyers I know aren't really in this space
- does anyone know a good (cheap ^_^) lawyer with F/OSS experience who
has the time to help?
