comment Should one always start a boolean with “is” or “has”? Or write it as it makes more sense grammatically?
The important part is to make it clear what "true" means - which both your examples do. Personaly I go with the is/has first to flag that it is a bool

comment call a non GPL-Program from a GPL program via fork
@Bent would the whole be "a work based on the program"? I can distribute a GPL program that requires commercial operating system components to operate.

@gnat - not sure it's really a dupe of my slightly nitpicking question.

comment Why is the minus sign, '-', generally not overloaded in the same way as the plus sign?
What about "blahblah.txt" - ".txt" to leave "blahblah", that would be useful

comment What is a good license for community submissions to commercial partially closed source software?
@Atsby I didn't say what form the assignment should take. But you do need to be assigned permission to use their code from the owners if the license they contributed it under doesn't explicitly allow it

comment Can I link to a gpl library from a closed source application?
@AquariusPower well the correct answer is whatever the court decides! Calling a gpl program in a shell is generally OK - the whole idea of Unix is to use other small tools in your own. But creating an app which merely wraps some GPL lib merely to give it an interface to your closed so that you can release the wrapper while keeping your own app closed is obviously not in the spirit of the GPL.

comment Can I link to a gpl library from a closed source application?
@AquariusPower. No you can use GPL tools to create proprietry results just as you can use GPL compilers to generate commercial code. It is only derived if you dig into the GPL code and extract source/ideas, exactly the same as if you used bits of MS Word
