Well yes, but BSD has in my eyes this one way license problem. Linux is GPL/LGPL and this is free and stays free. I guess that also attracts more developers to it than to a BSD licensed project. Some see it as freedom to have the ability to even close / relicense the code under a different license but I don't.

But maybe some of the interesting info won there could be used in the more mainstream products.
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
