Thanks Joe, I was not aware that there is an ongoing discussion. Which would be 3am in the middle of the night for me anyway.

But thumbs up for the initiative.

  Boy,

  There was nothing quiet, or "in the background" about it, believe me.  This update is the topic of conversation at the noon PDT brown bag I'm hosting today.  The changes were pushed live ahead of the meeting, so there would be no question they are incorporated in to the TPV and TOS, both of which are effective on 4/30.

  I'll see those of you still interested in the subject at noon here:

    As this did not make it into the mailing list yet but is rather important,
    LL changed the TPV policy again, quiet, in the background.

    I don't know how this affects the legal validity of that document
    people agreed by clickwrapping since the new ToS popup, I just
    want to make you aware of that.

    Robin ran a diff and the actual changes can be found here:

    Major changes as I see them, the terms "...you develop and distribute"
    are gone, and one new paragraph was introduced.
    "Nothing in this Policy is intended to modify the terms of the GPL."

    Someone in LL seems to have woken up, but damage is done
    nevertheless.

    Boy
