Thank you for this.

In a way it does address my concerns by continuing to weave and waffle. 
Basically it confirms my suspicion that the Thingiverse change of terms 
of use was to redress a loophole unintentionally put in there 
originally. And that it has always been the intention to provide 
MakerBot Industries a wider license than the so-called 'secondary' 
license, but that it was only recently realised that it didn't, or 
didn't do sufficiently enforcable.

I'll try to add an update to the blog I wrote earlier on Flux and will 
take some other valuable remarks made on this list into account. May I 
quote messages sent to this list?
