It surely is unsettling to see, or believe to see, one's views distorted,
misrepresented, or simply disregarded or chopped off a thread in a way or
in another.

I made a clear point, even if in a humorous mood, and I'll state it here
again: I am a contributor to a project, opam, which is licensed under LGPL,
so whomever wants to change the licence of opam needs my informed consent,
as well as the consent of the other contributors.

Independently from the CLA discussion, which is another subject, my formal
position here is that I am opposed to see the licence of opam changed to
BSD or other non copyleft ones.

Now dropping off this thread
