In one of the previous emails I described that 5 very active
contributors were not happy with the situation at sr.wp at the time
when there were ~40 very active contributors. I don't think that sr.wp
had much more than 100 important contributors and I may count 10
unhappy. So, the first 10% have some empirical grounds. Actually, even
the next 10% have empirical grounds: I know the person who would sue
sr.wp community if they can. Fortunately, the next 10% are 0.1.

I was not EFF lawyer and Serbia is an irrelevant place for copyright
and patent issues: we have 1 (one) person with PhD in copyright :)
