…it’s possible that I was too harsh in my assessment of the ZFS licensing situation.
It is possible that Sun fully intends to put ZFS, in its entirety, under both CDDL and GPLv3 — and the reason Jonathan isn’t saying so is because his lawyers threw a hissy fit when he proclaimed Sun’s intention to similarly dual-license OpenSolaris before the lawyers were “ready”.
I should do well to remember: never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by an army of nervous lawyers.
So we’ll see. Maybe ZFS will be dual-licensed under GPLv3 after all. And if so, then the ball really is in Linus’s court.
