Sometimes it is hard to tell the motivation.  I would have preferred  
that the license discussion not be attached to the announcement of one  
particular project and instead treated as a different/new thread of  
discussion.  That removes any doubts.  A more appropriate use of the  
announcement thread would have been to discuss the project goals or  
technical questions.

However, I agree that it is time to move on.  We definitely don't want  
this devolving any further ..
