New "lldb" Debugger

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm happy to announce a great new 
| subproject of LLVM: LLDB. LLDB is a modern 
| debugger infrastructure which is built 
| (like the rest of LLVM) as a series of 
| modular and reusable libraries. LLDB builds 
| on existing LLVM technologies like the 
| enhanced disassembler APIs, the Clang ASTs 
| and expression parser, the LLVM code 
| generator and JIT compiler.


How a Test Suite Can Help Your Open Source Project Grow

,----[ Quote ]
| Use these test suites to your advantage, as 
| simulators like them can also help create 
| an organic "buzz" around the project as 
| well. Include the developers' names on the 
| open-source software license, too. That 
| will also help.


[Harald Welte:] My take on the FSF action against Apple over GNU Go

,----[ Quote ]
| I personally very much support the action 
| the FSF has taken. Anyone involved in 
| distribution of copyrighted material is 
| required to do due diligence on checking 
| that he actually has a license to do so. 
| This is not really related to the GPL.
| Yes, this means that I can take GPL 
| enforcement action to a retail store that 
| is selling/distributing infringing 
| products, and I can make them provide a 
| declaration to cease and desist from 
| further infringements. Of course, that 
| declaration would only be valid for this 
| single retail store. This is why in our 
| gpl-violations.org work, we always try to 
| go after whatever entity is responsible for 
| the majority or all of those infringements, 
| rather than after a single store owner. 



FSF: Apple's iTunes Store terms of service at odds with GPL

,----[ Quote ]
| The Free Software Foundation is up in arms
| over Apple's iTunes Store Terms of Service,
| suggesting that these terms fundamentally
| conflict with the terms of the GNU Public
| License. The foundation has warned Apple
| that a version of GNU Go distributed by the
| App Store makes Apple liable to comply with
| GPL terms that allow free sharing of code,
| but warned that its "Usage Rules" violate
| those terms. The fallout could potentially
| affect any app that uses GPLed code.


Apple's GPL Snafu and Opportunity

,----[ Quote ]
| Apple is finding itself on wrong end of the
| Free Software Foundation (FSF). An iPhone
| port of GNU Go has made its way into the App
| Store, which is all good â except that the
| terms of the App Store conflict with the GNU
| General Public License.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
