Feel free to ask them, just not on this list

Red Hat's outside counsel has made a statement asserting (in
part) CentOS project misbehavior by so-called 'deep linking'
Moreover, our client does not allow others [in a
letter directed to asserted improper CentOS project
behavior] to provide links to our client's web site

I realize you [Joshua Bahnsen] feel a need to top post for
some reason, but it simply means that context threading is
Red Hat's counsel threatened litigation against the project if
it did not address various alleged issues:
... we trust that this issue can be resolved promptly
and amicably and appreciate your attention to this
matter. We look forward to your reply and request a
response no later than February 4, 2005
Why would the project go again near a sharp edge that Red Hat
has chosen to take offense at? Who shall insure and indemnify
the project and its members against the costs of defense, let
alone any damages award?
Please note that I do not need a reply on that question, as it
is clearly a rhetorical question.
