Yes, Mach is
sort of an exception, because it was merely the ground for the whole
kernel.  But being BSD-licenced, it was not posing problems for future
re-licensing.

Well, Mach is what we're talking about now, and if being BSD-licensed doesn't pose a problem, then why should my contributions be a problem if they're GPL-licensed?

Please make a decision about the 169 line patch I attached to my earlier email.  You can use it under the GPL, and I'm even willing to assign copyright on it to the FSF.  But it's not going to be "all past and future work" on Hurd, or gnumach, or anything else.

I think Charlie Sale deserves some clear guidance on whether or not he can base a new tracing facility on that patch.
