You mean Sun/MySQL then, because for Drizzle, Sun does work with BSD code. That's actually a nuisance to me since it allows them to dual-license Drizzle, which I reckon is a really bad idea - best if that were not possible.

Anyway, we come up with a workaround to safely be able to donate code
to Sun, so now we can finally start to submit them some bug fixes.

Seems to me like they're sidelining themselves.
