Also, he modifies Lerna’s licence, explicitly saying that he forbids specific companies to use it, because they collaborated with the US ICE.

Eventually someone opens an issue in Lerna‘s repo to say what the fuck, get rid of the guy already.

Which, to my surprise, it seems that they did. I thought virtue signalling makes one immune these days.
