@deltaidea @django I guess the issue is the very dogmatic interpretation of open source as distributed by the OSI. In particular "no discrimination against fields of endeavour", where a "field of endeavour" could be something very harmful

@captainbland @django Ah, okay, we agree on that point! If an open source project doesn't count because it doesn't allow using it to build extermination camps, then we seriously need to reconsider who is the authority on this subject. 😅

You can't be outside of politics. It's like towing an oil barge "outside of the environment" in that old skit: youtube.com/watch?v=3m5qxZm_Jq
