And I still say you're missing the point. We may never get forced
disclosure of code never intended to be disclosed. Maybe that's not
desirable, either. I'm not debating that at this point.

Our current bill, AB 851, doesn't ask for that -- only disclosure on new
certifications. Ideally, we get incentives for true open source.

Nonetheless, AB 2097 and the San Francisco case help bring out the issues.
Different methods might be nice but that's what I got.
