Saving Open Source? Terraform, Redis

The threat to open source comes from within

OpenTofu Project was recently made aware of a letter by HashiCorp’s lawyers, alleging that OpenTofu was not respecting the terms of its BSL license governing its Terraform codebase

In a pattern that has previously happened for Elasticsearch and Terraform, and one that was extremely predictable, Redis is now forked at least three different ways - the original Redis, now no longer under BSD, Valkey, under BSD and led by previous contributors to Redis from AWS and other companies, and Redict, under GPL, led by an open-source coalition. Both of these licenses allow commercial reuse.
