I never said it was. What I said is that Collabnet intends to
profit from subversion, and I am not interested in helping
Collabnet do that (given other options that achieve my goals),
because that hurts me. I don't see what's hard to follow about
that. What I can understand is that others have different
criteria for what is helpful to them in developing subversion (as
you say, maybe someone else is hanging a business on it), and
what is detrimental to them in helping Collabnet profit (maybe
someone is independently wealthy and has no concern about
financials). That's a choice each must make according to his own
criteria and values.
