Merge: reducing maintenance burden, consolidates communities.
Fork: increases maintensnce burden, fragments commumities.
Why on Earth should systemd fork shit like Qt now that systemd is trying to reduce overall maintenance burden and create a CoreOS? You make no sense and it seems like your point is Qt is great because you can fork. Well it is really no joy to fork, because you cant find anyone who can do it.
Qt community has never pulled off such a stunt. You can still use Webkit without porting everything to Qt.
Webkit is LGPL-licensed, BTW. It's in Qt. No CLA.
Free software is great because you can fork. That is the whole fucking point about it. Forking saved xorg, GCC, Emacs, and now it is saving GNOME. The ability to fork is what makes Free Software great, not psycho dictators who want total control over your system and how you use it.You make no sense and it seems like your point is Qt is great because you can fork.
