I find MySQL's duplicity in their GPL licensing to be a breach of open source integrity - waiving it where they see fit, and selling a license to customers to relieve them of their fears surrounding the viral nature of the GPL. MySQL tried that on my company, and we sent them packing. I do not trust them, they are no friend of GPL.

thanks. great write up. you write as if axis forking had never become an issue though- wrt to your pushbacks against John Fowler and Sun. open source does need strong governance imho, when it comes to enterprise production
