    initial v1  
    22> As for the licenses: I'm not familiar with the BSD-type licenses (all my stuff uses either GPL or CC), or the implications. But as long as it remains "free and shareable", it's fine with me :)

    4 My understanding is that both BSD and GPL licenses make the code "free and shareable", the difference is that some of the terms of the GPL license are more restrictive than the BSD license, so generally we don't like to pollute BSD-licensed plugins with GPL-licensed code. I've worked on TracMetrixPlugin and StratisticsPlugin; there is also TracStatsPlugin and possibly more. My aim with the license change is to allow the codes to be mixed if needed, and perhaps we can merge some efforts to create one very functional plugin that is maintained long-term, rather than having several poorly maintained plugins.

    66The good news is that I received a reply to a private email to dagomez, and it sounds like the license will be changed to BSD 3-Clause.
