Just came across this
(http://www.kde.org/announcements/rmsresponse.html) on Linux Today.
Basically the KDE camp have rejected out of hand RMS' contention that
because the authors of code within kmidi & kghostview didn't explicitly
give permission for their code to be linked against QT, these apps
violate the GPL.
I don't see where he's coming from to be honest, to my mind open source
software is reusable by whomever wants to reuse it and in whatever way
he/she/they want to reuse it.
Has RMS finally lost the plot? Or is this his way of "getting his own
back" at KDE for using QT which wasn't originally GPL'd?
