It doesn't remedy the breach but by "forgiveness" what RMS is talking about
is a commitment from the developers that they will not take any action as a
result of this breach and also that they are re-granting the license to the
people who breached it.
If a contract is breached, the contract becomes null and void and no
parties are bound by any of the terms anymore. So there is no problem
reissuing the licence,
