Sorry, forgot to copy the list.

> Fourth, if you port the kernel module to a permissively licensed kernel like NetBSD or FreeBSD, it’s conceivable Jason would work with you on the license. If I recall correctly. early in Wireguard’s development, Jason said he was open to licensing his code to match the kernels for which it’s destined (e.g., BSD license for a port to a BSD kernel). That was years ago, but it might be worth inquiring.
