#11500 closed task (fixed)

Consider changing license

Reported by: Ryan J Ollos Owned by: Martin Scharrer
Priority: normal Component: AdvParseArgsPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords: license
Cc: Steffen Hoffmann Trac Release:


The GPL-license used by the plugin is incompatible with the BSD-license used by Trac. What I believe this means is, we could not directly incorporate your code without a license change.

I haven't looked at your codebase yet, but from reading the description on the wiki page there are some features that I believe would be good to port into Trac. Would you consider changing the license so that I can use your code directly when creating patches for Trac? You will of course be acknowledged in Trac as the author these changes.

Hi, BSD-licence is fine with me, too. I will change the corresponding statements.

Thanks. Let me know if you don't find time to make the changes and I'm happy to make them myself.

martin_s: I went ahead and made the changes. Please let me know if I should make any further adjustments.

I'll let you know if any of these changes get integrated to the Trac core.
