Re: Copyright assignment

I'm very much of the latter opinion, too. Evolution is free software,
and should not be blocked because of copyright assignment. My concerns
are merely in the future of it - what if the copyright holders turn
evil, get bought, or otherwise make things worse that would force
someone to fork. 

I do not believe, under any circumstances, that any kind of free
software that fits into the GNOME Desktop should be blocked because of
copyright assignment.

Best wishes,
