Preamble
I can't find a more convenient and relevant place to save this article than here, on the other hand given the results of the last Forum thread I was involved about the issue, I'm reluctant to do it openly in a way that would trigger another flame-fest.

So this post will be blocked from comments, and I will not engage in any public discussion about the matter.

The issue
Apparently, there's a licensing issue on the planned ZFS support for Ubuntu. The thing is somewhat confusing even to me ( a self proclaimed not-a-lawyer that thinks that knows something about laws :p ), but some points from the offended party appears to corroborate some opinions of mine.

Let me tell in advance that both sides of this question are collaborating together in order to find a solution - they are adversaries, not enemies. As it should be, when both sides aims to do what's right.
