    Actually, the incompatibility is more with the way the GPL is written then with CDDL. The CDDL
    allows you to give the code you amend to any CDDL code back to the community, or keeep the IP, and since all Solaris code (which may not include proprietary code that isn't owned by Sun), is supposed to be released under this new license, I could amend that code, but not release it, to Sun or otherwise. The GPL requires you to give it back. From what I understand the GPL is supposed to be working towards a similiar proposition.

    Regardless of which side is causing the problem, CDDL code and GPL code can't mix. That's the crux of the issue.
