Re: RFH: GPLv3

Yes, but doesn't say *which one*: that's the whole point here! All it gives are very general terms that the license must follow. That's what I've been calling the "mini-GPL".

That is the point. The FSF, at this time, has said that as of August 1 all patches are GPLv3.

I was talking about patches -- copyrightable creative works which may
be assigned and licensed.  You appear to be talking about something else.

No, I'm trying to separate the two parts of a patch, the fact that it's a derived work from the file being patched and the creative component of the patch, by discussing each individually because I believe that different licensing issues apply to each.

You want to mix two different things and call them the same. The only part which matters is the creative changes.
