You may ask directly to

webmas...@freebsd.org

I think they are the most knowledgeable persons about FreeBSD web site
management
issues .


If they find it useful , they may attach a new page having sections , for
example :


Advertisements about
   . Software for FreeBSD
   . Hardware for FreeBSD
   . Services for FreeBSD
   .
   . others
   .

In that way people may be informed about products and services about FreeBSD
and FreeBSD Project may be financed partly by advertisements .


Thank you very much .

That's right, Bill, but it might be that Ms. Werrett is interested

No concerted efforts that I know of, but note that most of those

overridden by the amendment in /COPYRIGHT.  There is some ongoing work

RE: advertising clause in license

2004-10-22 Thread Ted Mittelstaedt

Nell,

  Just a request, please do not use the term advertising clause

This is a term that was created by the Linux bigots, specifically
people like RMS who is so bigoted he can't see beyond the tip
of his nose.  It has never been advertising before to give
credit to the authors of a software package until the pro-GPL-anti-BSD
crowd came along.  It has also never been a burden of any kind
to include credit to UCB until people started to think it was
because the GPL crowd told them.  And many companies used BSD
code without giving credit, and nobody cared.  (for example,
Microsoft who used plenty of BSD code including BSD header files
that still had the BSD copyrights in them)

  I think it is either extremely mean-spirited to make a big
deal over this or it is a subtle BSD-bash to do so.  Nobody in
the BSD community ever coined the term advertising-clause this
was forced on us from without, and there is no reason to use
it.

Ted Mittelstaedt

I didn't notice anyone displaying arrogance or unwillingness to
cooperate.   What I see is someone completely misunderstanding
what they were doing and then trying to blame someone else for
their own mistakes.   

Further, it is not possible for someone at FreeBSD to remove your 
messages from existance because no-one at FreeBSD has any determinate
control over where the messages are distributed or stored or archived or
made available over the net.  It is not a finite thing.  If you will 
take the time to understand what has been told to you, you will be much 
enlightened and maybe it will help you in avoiding mistakes in the future.

Please don't continue to maintain your ignorance and use it to
shift blame to others.   It will just make things more difficult
for yourself and compromise your own credibility.

getting every message posted to it sent to my mailbox along with

And bear in mind that even these messages will be archived in the near

Greg,

Your private correspondence was with a very large public mailing
list. So large, in fact, that the list is also available on usenet.

See here:
http://groups.google.com/groups?q=www.car-insurance-first.co.ukhl=enlr=ie=UTF-8oe=UTF-8safe=offselm=b6ssin%242cf5%241%40FreeBSD.csie.NCTU.edu.twrnum=1

There is no way to remove the documents unless you want to take google
to court. If you do, you will most likely lose.
