Clearing the Air: Response to RIT statement on Licensing & other issues

SMC has to clarify its position in regards to the concerns raised on RITs statement posted in Rajeesh KV's blog and other instances of same statement  here and here. The statement came as a surprise to the project admins of SMC since this statement was made by key members of SMC project, specifically Rajeesh KV and Hussain KH. The claims run deep into several key areas of how SMC operates as a Free and Open Source Software organisation and the notions of copyright. As any organisation that operates out in the open, SMC project's secretary, Hrishikesh, initiated a discussion in the public mailing list, and members volunteered to create a task force that would investigate these claims and demands, and then recommend a way forward.
