Change to 3-Clause BSD license?

Reported by: Ryan J Ollos Owned by: Jeff Hammel
Priority: normal Component: TracHoursPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12


Hi k0s,

I've been doing a lot of work on the TracHoursPlugin lately. I was wondering if you would allow the license to be changed from GPL to 3-Clause BSD, as you did with the AutocompleteUsersPlugin.

My motivation for the license change is a bit different now than when I asked regarding the AutocompleteUsersPlugin. I've been doing work on the Trac-derivative Bloodhound project lately. Well, actually just getting started on that. I'm trying to make sure that all of the plugins I work on for Trac will have the possibility of being part of Apache Bloodhound someday. Not that there is any guarantee that they will, but I just like to leave open the possibility for every plugin that I'm throwing serious effort at. The 3-Clause BSD license allows this, and makes the most sense because that is how Trac is licensed.
