How can it *not* be a CC issue? Jonathan stated the issue very
clearly. All the CC need do is agree that Ubuntu is Free Software,
that we continue to respect the four freedoms as we always have.

What Canonical does is their business of course, and naturally I hope
that their discussions with the SFLC go well, and that all is
clarified on their end. Until that happens and their one problematic
page is changed, the CC can at least be on record standing for

"Waiting on Canonical" is problematic. Canonical's issues are their
own. The CC is for US, the Ubuntu Community.
