Interesting discussion. My only comment is this: Apple has opted to
replace sendmail with Postfix for MacOS X 10.3, and they're pretty
paranoid about licensing issues. Apple has a couple billion USD in
the bank, so they're quite a lightening rod for these kind of law
suits. There is no way their legal team didn't carefully consider
liability issues before making the switch; if they felt there was ANY
increased liability whatsoever it never would have happened.
Nobody cares what Apple chooses to do with their legal team. OpenBSD
does NOT have a couple billion USD in the bank, so they can't afford to
expose themselves in ANY way, not to mention they can't afford their
own legal team anyways.
This has been discussed ad nauseum on the OpenBSD lists. There's a
reason why the project is called OPEN. Stop wasting everyone's time
and read the archives.
