Paul Allen's concerns on LKML that if the GPL rights are not asserted, then any future, or additional violations, by grsecurity could raise the defenses of waiver or latches against future actions based upon a failure to assert GPL rights here (while dubious, they become additional hurdles that must be responded to and overcome, regardless of their merit).

If you are a contributor, it makes sense to get in contact with others similarly situated, and make sure you understand the competing issues, the statute of limitations that apply, and the upside/downside to acting or failing to act. No, I'm not looking for clients either, but will explore the issue and contribute to the extent needed. I've followed the earlier grsecurity threads on this list out of curiosity that something like this may unfold.
