LXer: Open Source coders caught stealing Open Source code

Published at LXer:

Developers of OpenBSD took code from their brethren at Linux, violating the code's licence, the GPL. To the horror of the Linux folk, the OpenBSD license allows proprietary use. [The Inquirer's link to the mailing list shows only half the discussion. Gmane has the full discussion -- Sander]

The OpenBSD developers may very well have made a mistake. They need to quit bitching about the bcm43xx being "mean" and either accept the GPL for this driver, or re-write it. If they have copied GPL code and don't release it under the GPL, they are clearly in the wrong and need to fix it. Now.
