In the great moral and global IP battle swirling around the use of BitKeeper by Canberra penguin bitee Linus Torvalds and Canberra reverse engineer (and all-round uber-geek amongst many other achievments) Andrew Tridgell, it’s good to get some outside perspective.

So Tridge is viewing the formats and messaging etc and making a client to work with it, but McVoy and Linus think he is reverse engineering and straight copying their original, now withdrawn, client?

I’ll sit this one out I think.
