[REBOL] steel... gpl licensing...

From: maximo:meteorstudios at: 28-Aug-2003 20:38

hi all, I am wondering what you all think of gpl licensing. Do some of you hate it, or have alternate open source or personal licenses which are less restrictive (or more, depending on your side of the fence?) yet legaly binding enough that you feel safe. I'm about to suggest making the STEEL project a gpl based tool with alternative licensing in certain circumstances (like commercial and contributor licenses). I just want to take a pulse of the community to see if I'll be hated for doing so... I'm not all sure about the gpl license itself, yet (I'll have to print it and read it again a few times, but it seemed quite fair when I read it last week...) some code in steel would be released with lesser gpl licensing too... (free to distribute but not to modify) what do you all think... since I'm using mail space... just a quick update on STEEL documentaion... I have to clear up a last minute problem I had with liquid-vid, building up a tutorial for it (which is why the updated site is STILL not online). I'll update the site and you'll see that it is much more functional. The small tutorial for liquid-vid should basically get you up and running with it in a matter of minutes. ... I think I'm going to cry, now... I've been hitting documentation, licensing and site layout almost daily for the last 2 1/2 weeks now, and its still not online ... 8.-( -MAx ------------- Steel project coordinator
