Of BSD? Sure. Of CDDL? Huh?
I'd very much like to be able to include CDDL source into NetBSD, but as
it stands, I just don't see how this should happen. So far the only
arguments claiming this is possible seem to ignore the implications a
possible inclusion of CDDL code into (Net)BSD has, and which I think are
not acceptable to NetBSD. Unfortunately.
Fingerpointing at some FAQ that claims something while the license is in
rather clear contradiction won't solve this.
