There is neither a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement. Things may change quite rapidly as soon as he gets a cease and desist letter, but the current situation---distributing GPLed source (and binaries) which clearly infringes some software patents--is common practice (even the FSF does it, see the networking code in GNU libc, and GnuPG's crypto algorithms except Rijndael are probably candidates as well). -- Archive is at - Unsubscribe by sending mail with a subject of "unsubscribe" to
