No, it isn't about copyrights, it's about ego and it's about trivia and it's
about pointless wanking about nothing in particular.

The vast majority of the unread mail sitting in my ~/inbox in front of this
message I'm replying to are current-users posts with a Subject: of
"Re: copyright questions".  I'm going to delete them all without looking at
any of them.  I don't see how any of it is relevant to the code that is
"NetBSD-current" (hint: you can't compile it, since it's in a comment  (-: )

copyright == a tree
lack of formal ATAPI CD-ROM support, lack of bootable CD-ROM == a forest

Doesn't anyone remember the last Usenix NetBSD BOF?

Can you all take this to netbsd-copyright or netbsd-legalwranglings, please?!?
Is it *really* necesssary to be argued here, in this forum?
