@zladuric Now if your dependencies are copyleft (AGPL, GPL or LGPL), Google has to share the patches and source and build setup.
If it’s MIT/BSD/Apache/…, you’re at their mercy.
Hi developer, copyleft protects the user. Guess who’s a user, too.
Dear open source users,
If the author of your favorite open source app has announced they stopped developing and supporting the app (because they're frustrated and possibly burned out), please don't suggest they do more free work so that you can continue using the app.
Instead, consider thanking them for their past work and let them know that you enjoyed their app.

I firmly believe the best training for defensive (and offensive???) #cybersecurity roles is not any security cert, but training as a system administrator. Learn how things are built before you try to protect/exploit them.
