I'm sorry about my last two messages; they may have helped me vent my
spleen, but they weren't accomplishing anything productive.
In more of an attempt to be constructive, what if we identify the key
aspects to the AL that people like and then, for Perl 6, find legal
counsel to review and help draft a precise legal license with those key
Surely there must be someone in the Perl community with either
intellectual property law experience or a willingness to chip in to a fund
to hire an intellectual property lawyer? The aspect of preserving the
name of the package is fairly unique to the AL; having a strong legal
license with that provision would provide a valuable additional
alternative on the licensing landscape.
