Danny, if you or anyone else has an issue with the governance of the kernel
project, attempting to address it via an end-run through a "litmus test" of
Ubuntu's support for "software freedom" seems a rather passive-aggressive
way to go about it. I don't see much productive coming out of this

If you're not happy with the way the kernel project is being run, I suggest
you'd do better to go talk to Linus and Andrew Morton about it.

If Ubuntu's governance is not to your liking, there are plenty of other
distros. If none of those is to your liking, you can roll your own.
