<marcus>hmm, libinput seems to be too old to detect my touchpad correctly. is there a way for me to updated it on my own, or should i contact the package maintainer (if there is something like that in guix)
<phant0mas>marcus: send an email to guix-devel with what your problem is
<mark_weaver>xentrac: thanks :) I do feel that it's important to support non-Intel architectures, especially since both Intel and AMD seem to be headed in the direction of making machines we can't use without non-free software.
<xentrac>yes, and also making non-auditable machines
<mark_weaver>and then sxml->xml raises errors on those symbols, complaining of more than one colon
<mark_weaver>xml->sxml accepts a 'namespaces' keyword argument to convert those to something like blah:foo instead, but then sxml->xml lacks any mechanism to do the right thing with those blah:foo symbols.
<davexunit>mark_weaver: I had interpreted it as more of a "cute" thing that had no legal standing because it's far too vague to be taken seriously.
<daviid>anyway, unless clearly stating what license, which afaic must be gpl compatible, it's not good. the copyright is just who's going to defend the license terms in case of violation
<mark_weaver>xentrac: if that were true, I'm sure Eben Moglen and the Software Freedom Law Center, who worked on making sure GPLv3 worked well internationally, would have pointed out that we need to add "All rights reserved" to the standard GPLv3 copying permission notice.
<mark_weaver>and it's not just the GNU GPLv3. there are several other well known free software licenses that don't include that language in their copying permission notices.
<xentrac>mark_weaver: I think that at this point there are no countries that are signatories to the Inter-American Convention or whatever it is that aren't also signatories to Berne.
<mark_weaver>the FSF may not have lawyers on staff, but they have some brilliant lawyers providing massive amounts of pro-bono services.
<xentrac>WP explains, "The requirement to add the "all rights reserved" notice became essentially obsolete on August 23, 2000 when Nicaragua became the final member of the Buenos Aires Convention to also become a signatory to the Berne Convention."
