I would love to see more work being done on PM (either by me, or
others), since I haven't had much motivation lately (nobody used it, at
least not that I would know...).

Integration into the GNUstep project itself is a problematic issue. I
have no problem releasing all code for it under GNU GPL 2 - make no
mistake, I love free software and the ideas behind it and I support
them. However, recent FSF work on GPL 3 has raised my eyebrows quite
often. BSD licenses, on the other hand, appear to me to be a bit too
liberal. I just don't see the reason for a copyright assignment, when
the same effect can be achieved with a proper free software license (GNU
GPL 2), which makes sure that free software stays free.

Anyways, I don't want this discussion to turn over into an overly
bloated law-oriented flamewar of licenses and copyrights. If we agree
that PM in GNUstep is a good thing *based on technical merits* and a
copyright assignment is required to do so, I would probably sign it. I
think the free software world is lately spending too much time talking
about law and too little about code. And besides - in my country the law
states that I cannot hand down my copyrights to anything I create :-) I
can grant anybody I want the same rights, but my own rights 'stick'
forever onto me :-P
