Maybe we could have a transition-archiv with all GPLv3 files so far
Then people could go on, as soon the matter arrived there.
Too we could upload/adapt new things meanwhile.
But what good does that do if it doesn't run? Specifically, upload/
adapt without testing at all is kind of silly, isn't it? It just
sounds like extra work to me.
The point is that *you* can combine free software any way you like in
the privacy of your own machine. If you want to use GPLv3 code in
your personal version of XEmacs, there is no problem whatsoever. If
you have GPLv3 code in your private hg repository, it doesn't matter;
you can still sync *from* the GPLv2 XEmacs "official" repository to
your private repository. You just can't distribute your version of
XEmacs with your new code until it's fully GPLv3, specifically you
can't push to the public XEmacs repository.
