You keep ignoring one important objection to the licence change.
A lot of the XFree86 code has been contributed under the XFree86 licence by people who were acting under the assumption that their code would remain under the old licence.
The licencing change has apparently been decided single handedly by you, without consulting most contributors (for my part, I learnt about the change from the press).
I believe this to be a case of mis-governance. Until this question is settled, it will be difficult for many contributors (including myself) to trust the XFree86 governing body (i.e. you).
i think that this is unfair. there are more than just david on the board of xfree86. are you telling me that they are all just puppets of one man?
