Re: [ba-unrev-talk] Licensing of the unrevii email archives

Paul,    (01)

Thank you for yet another wonderful post. My personal views, given the
context (one has to remember that was then, it was a colloquium where Doug
was going to share his vision with us, and we have not been having this this
kind of conversation,) below --    (02)

[PPY]  I would say, safe from driving the entire effort to the ground,
without our even realizing it coming, given the corporate and socio-economic
setting.    (04)

[PPY]  -ditto-    (06)

[PPY]  Absolutely! I would think this is the type of "dialog" and
"co-evolution" that Doug tells us about in real action. Therefore, if you
take out the word "unfortunate",  I would agree to everything you said here.

Thank you for your tenacity on the matter, Paul. I'll keep quiet and defer
the conversation now to more qualified persons in the community in
presenting other facets for consideration, if any. This is an important and
strategic issue, indeed. There are just too many slippery slopes where this
matter can take us -- which probably was why it had remained unresolved for
so long.  In the end, I shall trust Doug in his vision, and in his final
disposition BI.    (09)

Thanks & regards,
