There needs to be a plan around it. There needs to be a real
justification; ignoring my experience, and even our preferences -
what's the project justification for such a painful change. Change for
change's sake is awful.
JMW is probably closer to this than most - but are there people who
have objected to using gluster on the license grounds? Objected to
contributing to gluster because of licensing? Perhaps a good place to
look is deals where a competitor to Gluster has been chosen.
