    What's it with Canonical and trying to pretend they don't say things such as when they were going to drop multilib support, then said they didn't say that despite the words being on their blog.

      The linked 'CLA' Wikpedia Article states:

      The contributor continues to own the copyright in the contribution, with full rights to re-use, re-distribute, and continue modifying the contributed code, allowing them to also share that contribution with other projects."[6]
      1. that ist not very restrictive
      2. any contributor still owns the copyright
      3. you can still fork and do whatever you like, it might just not get accepted "upstream"

      The plan behind "Project Harmony" is pretty good, because the GPL is partially lacking on some related points. The company where I'm working is developing and supporting a piece of software licensed as GPLv2. It would have been nice if we were able to relicense to GPLv3, but we're not able to do that, because of old contributions.

        You said nonsense, you confuse SUSE with openSUSE which are different things, I was talking about openSUSE which by default set KDE, and officially supports Kde, Gnome and Xfce.
