I understand well now, I didn't knew about the consortium membership
renewal. Don't take it bad Xavier I was not thinking about abusing the
consortium rules, I was just suprised that such abuse could actually be
possible using relicensing rules. The whole process looks fair enough to be
accepted by industrial users, but maybe lack flexibility for open source
