And that makes cristal clear that you don't understand my
questions. Those involve *always* Free vs Free software, including
"GPLvX and later" vs "GPLvX and later". So the reference to Skype is
just another attempt at sidetracking the questions.

Flamewar who? I made a series of questions about how GNU policies affect
non-GNU *FREE* software and how that fits the Free Software cause as a
whole. Because GNU is just an instrument of the FSF to promote Free
Software, and that may be at odds with such policies. Some people
(including you) insist on talking about unrelated issues (Skype,
my-dvcs-is-better-than-yours, etc.)

This is the second time that I make a question about core Free Software
issues on this list. Not only is this off-topic (for which I sincerely
apologize) but the result on both cases was just a gust of hot air with
some mixed sulfur.

Please note that I'm restraining myself from following up most
messages. And no more questions. I promise.
