Mathworks-hosted GPL'd software

    Apologies for the offtopic chatter, but I just noticed this as I was
    trying to look for Emacs's Matlab mode to see if I could get some
    ideas for Octave mode. It appears that the Mathworks only allows the
    BSD license on their servers now, which affects much free software
    under other licenses (in particular GPL) that they were hosting.

I hope they did not convince anyone to relicense to one of the BSD
licenses (there are two of them!).  Can you tell?

As for opposition from a proprietary software company, what else
would you expect?
