FUD? I'm giving facts based on the agreement. The CLA is the reason I have not contributed to Qt, and will not.
I'm not against using Qt, or liberally licensed apps. I'm against contributing to a CLA'd project, because it gives an unfair power to one side. I have contributed to Mesa/X, I'm not against the BSD licenses: there is no such difference in power there.
Past behavior is not an indication of anything.
A lot of the arguments repeated by the threadstarter are pure FUD.

Personally, I am less worried about power imbalance than I am about the chances of my code remaining free, so I prefer contributing to copyleft projects. But I've contributed BSD-style licensed stuff too. Which -- power imbalance or not -- is pretty much a guarantee that it will be closed by someone.
its good to see users keeping a eye on the devil!!
