  It is unfortunate that the Linux wifi developers have decided that their political agenda is more important than intellectual honesty. Open source works because we all cooperate to make better software. Getting credit for the work we do is a big incentive for people to contribute their code.

I urge the Linux wireless developers to consider how well they would like having their own work stripped of its license and their own credits for writing it removed. It's not a nice thing to do, and it is damaging to the community. Honor the work of others as you would like your own work honored.
