In the latest news from SO, the following was posted (emphasis mine):
- MIT licensing of code was proposed, but held back due to community naysayers.
- CC-BY-SA incremented from 3.0 to 4.0. - likely in good faith.
- Vast majority of community likely fine with 4.0.
- Vast majority not fine with fait accompli.
- Some (a very few?) thought that this happened in bad faith.
- We have apologized for the fait accompli.
- We want to signal our intent to keep up with future changes to CC-BY-SA.
- We will create a process and be engaged on licensing issues on Meta.
- We have had hours of meetings on this, and it is a big priority.
- We have no intention of moving away from creative commons or paywalling users content in any way.
Has that actually happened? Was there any place were SO made any sort of apology related to their actions in the licensing space? The original re-licensing announcement is here, and there was a follow up post to it here, but I don't see any apologies there, and I don't know of any other posts related to this.
For those suggesting that this question is a dupe of mine, I disagree. It was answered in one week and its possible SO did something since then. The SO leadership seems to have explicitly stated something was made, which is in direct contrast with the answer in that post.
