A good blog entry, and in agreement with another email on a similar thread
that I just replied to.  I'm going to try to collect and quote these common
threads into my own blog posting so that I, too, can point to a fixed

Hi Chris,

This is Zac Bowling, one of the developers on the Mono Project. We are
used to being on the border of Microsoft vs Open Source with our
project all the time so I have some different views about the MS-PL
and MS-CL.

I blogged about it a few days ago as well on the ups and downs of
MS-PL and MS-CL and submitting to the OSI.
