Funny, the pro-CoC developers claim any discussion is off-topic on the linux developer lists.

The licensing of linux-kernel is completely on topic, since there may
be linux-copyright-holders reading this list.

They have been told they have no rights, that they transferred them away.

This is a complete lie.
They have only magnanimously granted a license to use their code.

They have received nothing for it.
It is a gratuitous license given by them.

They can rescind this license from whomever they want at any time.
Including the linux kernel project.

is being resolved off-list shortly.

Some veiled threat?

Because you do not like my way of speaking, or the topic?
You want the property-owners to be dispossessed?

Question. Why are these license discussions being done on a USER list
instead of a DEVELOPER list? Gentoo has mailing lists that are to be
used for this sort of topic. How about taking them there? Here is a
link with them listed.

This is indeed off-topic for this list (and other Gentoo lists). This
is being resolved off-list shortly.

I appreciate everybody's ongoing patience with not replying.
