There was an excellent article about the growing interest of Russia and China in open source. I am shocked by the lack of reaction in our community -- we need to face the question: what we will do when (when! not if) hackers appear with interests closely alligned with those governments? It's not impossible their dayjob will be core hacking -- ie they will have the time the ordinal core hacker doesn't. We have already shown that we are willing to give up something good (namely compatibility in one direction with other phpass using systems) for the sake of one government (the USA, in this case) in this issue. How do we continue?
