Hi:

Several people have complained about forking from the BSD license.  If the 
BSD license is so flawed, why not open the discussion to FreeBSD and other 
BSD license users.  If the license truely is flawed, it can be "fixed" for 
all.  Then no one can claim: 1) a PostgreSQL fork, 2) kow tow to corporate 
interests.

People joining this discussion have varying levels of legal knowledge. It 
seems that some clarification by a legal expert on many of these issues is 
needed.  And knowing the variability of "expertise" in the legal profession, 
and the importance of the issue, I'd recommend a second or third opinion 
(opening the discusion as above could help with this).

John
