Re: Royalty free gstreamer plug-in


Do you mean the stance on providing only open source software without restrictions?

Yes. And that's not to say that I disagree with the stance. In fact, I
agree with it given that "restrictions" are well-defined.
Right. The restrictions are pretty well defined at this point. The project goals are well advertised and active on the lists I believe knows about it.

belligerent about looking into potential workarounds is not a show of
good faith. And, when you do not show good faith, you lose people.
Maybe you don't care; that's fine. But, it's good to be reminded that
the stances we take can and will alienate a bunch of people. It's the
truth whether you "much rather change the world instead of going along
with it" or not.

How is a Free and open source stance not showing good faith? . There are over seventy distributions based on Fedora. Its not religion or whims. Yes it will alienate a few proprietary software supporters who will have to get the software from elsewhere. What exactly is your solution that you are suggesting?. Vague notions dont help resolve anything.

Learn. Network. Experience open source.
