Before any Emacs or GNU software such as Org within Emacs or Emacs or other software start interacting by using patented protocols one shall consult attorneys of GNU. Once attorney confirm that it is alright then go ahead. See: https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/software-patents.html and https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/fighting-software-patents.html > Microsoft has provided a /standard/ that a huge number of editors/IDEs > have adopted with /independent implementations/. At this point there is > /nothing/ M$ could do to interfere with how the above works. In Emacs world we have Emacs standard. There is no need to rely on Micro$oft's patented LSP language server protocols. There is so much more than you think that M$ can interfer with how the above works. > You seem to be focusing on the term "server" in the name. This seems to > be a red herring in this case. In LSP the server is analogous to "emacs > --daemon" and the client to "emacsclient". Yes? Don't insist on something that is not, I fully understand what it is. I am talking of bigger picture and giving you references that may or may not expand your awareness. > I appreciate your concerns Jean, and am aware of Microsoft's history, > however I do not believe there is any factual basis for your conclusions > in this instance. See the patent https://uspto.report/patent/app/20190149346 > There is no need to loose sleep over an LSP Server for Org existing :) > On the contrary, I think it has the potential to ultimately enrich the > Org community (see previous discussions). Enrich it with unencumbered patent-free solutions. Adopting patented technologies in GNU projects shall be verified by GNU attorneys. Jean
