Are there other projects that use the agpl? Maybe ask them why they chose it.

Could also argue in favour of the agpl by starting from user freedom which seems to be the goal of the project.

That is a good line of argument.

In case I wasn't clear the first time, I need *other people* to post comments to the Tent folks. (That means you, dear reader.)
This is because I don't think they would take kindly to more pestering from me, but if they see it's a larger issue than just one guy they might pay attention.

Tent looks somewhat promising to me as an alternative to centralised social networking.
See for more details.

They have started releasing software, and are currently using the "MIT license".
I suggested they use Apache 2.0 or AGPL, but simply linking to the FSF's licensing page on why one might want to do that was not enough to convince them.
I suspect comments from multiple other people may be more persuasive.

So this is a call out for you to comment on this issue and see if we can get the Tent developers on board with better licensing.
