I followed the link related to Google's ban on AGPL and found http://blog.opalang.org/2012/05/opa-license-change-not-just-... What a great post. Specially I like this quote "But in reality, it turns out the license is barred from being used at many companies, so we end up repelling developers. Even worse, we don't get the main expected benefit as most developers won’t release the source anyway while they develop for many possible reasons: It’s not working yet, they are not proud of their code yet, they don’t know what to do with it yet, etc.""
