To be clear I'm not saying that IBM reason for acting the way they are
is not 'valid'.
I'm saying that this is not 'valid' for me and _my_ reasons to
participate, and, I suppose/hope(*), for most people that chose to
participate in LibreOffice.
(*) Actually it is a bit more than wishful thinking. There has been
significant evidences of numerous people indicating this (LGPL/no CLA)
was indeed a motivating factor in their decision to join LibreOffice.
and clearly that was also in the mind of the core group that started it too.
