/RANT- plan9 downloads/ Re: [Xen-devel] plan 9 status

In the mean time, might I suggest to the Plan9 organizers that if they are in 
any way sincere about having their code getting a good airing, they might 
consider lightening up on their stupid licensing requirements?  By including 
such ridiculous requirements in their license, they restrict downloads to one 
machine, and that poor machine doesn't have the capacity of the likes of 
sourceforge's international system of download mirrors.

I get very, very irate when the server claps out on me while I'm downloading 
something that has been offered freely to me - it raises the suspicion that 
the offer was bogus.

Well, that's off my chest, and on the wrong mailing list, for which I am very 
sorry, but it's a pain.
