      Well it’s not free software as defined by the FSF. But is that a bad thing? Isn’t this kind of cooperative spirit what “open source” should be about in the first place? I mean, if a MITM platform intended for usage by intelligence services is released under GPLv3, does that make it good for anyone?

      There were some debates almost two decades ago in the french-speaking world about free software (logiciel libre) vs freeing software (logiciel libérateur). This also echoes the more recent debates around RFC1984 at the IETF.


      Interesting idea. Although I think closed source anticapitalist software would miss the point. All in all, capitalists were the ones who attempted to private people from the ownership of their applications.
