I don't understand. Reading
<http://www.sleepycat.com/license.net>, it seems to me that FreeBSD
meets all the necessary requirements. Can someone who understands
the details of the licensing issues either explain the situation to
me, or provide pointers to references that do?
I mean, I found
b/text/1999/freebsd-current/19990607.freebsd-current>, but I must be
missing something because I still don't understand how it is "worse
than the GPL" or why it would require "publication of sources to all
binaries linked against libc".
Technical issues I can understand, but I just don't get this
licensing issue.

Is there a version online that is actually kept up-to-date? I
only count fifteen names at
<http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/staff.html>, 178 names at
<http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/staff-committers.html>, and nine
unique names at <http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/staff-doc.html>. I
was under the impression that there are well over 200 people that
currently have commit access?
Hmm. Looking at
=1.1&r2=text&tr2=1.147&f=c>, it looks to me like maybe there are only
199 current committers, although this number seems to slightly
disagree with what I counted above, unless there are additional
duplicates on those separate lists that I failed to eliminate. Hmm.
I don't suppose we could get a link to this page from the
handbook, could we? If I can figure out a better way to list all
these names and to break them up into the appropriate groups, I'll
submit a PR.
 On a side note, can anyone tell me why the search interface on
the FreeBSD web site is showing messages such as
have a date/time stamp of "Sat, 15 May 1999 03:09:28 +0400" to
instead have "Score: 1204; Lines: 47; 20-Jan-1998; Archive:
freebsd-current" in the summary response to the search?
which has a date/time stamp of "Thu, 3 Feb 2000 09:35:19 -0600" but
shows up in the summary response as having "Score: 1305; Lines: 43;
18-Dec-1996; Archive: freebsd-questions"?
