The BUSL Factor
Whenever we talk about Sentry's open source values we immediately have a bunch of nay-sayers jump on us. It's almost exclusively negative, either they're FOSS hard-liners who believe GPL is the cure for cancer, or they simply refuse to learn at all about what Sentry contributes, how we contribute, and in general our (fairly well informed) opinions and values. Today I'm going to talk a little about that, with a focus on Sentry's journey to the Business Source License. I doubt we'll convince the nay-sayers, but maybe it'll help you understand our choices a little better.
