You probably meant SMF's predecessor, YaBB SE.

Anyway, it could still be possible, as long as the licenses between the components are compatible. The licensing of the whole would just become the most restrictive of them all, namely the GPL. So, BSD, LGPL, and GPL combined would be under the GPL as a whole.

The only thing I hope to see is that any fork that comes through at least gives a nod to SMF.  It's been a brutal road to get SMF where it's at now, so I'm personally hoping that a good amount of the forks will pay homage to the originators. :D

Angelina Belle:
Wedge.org is currently running an RC version of SMF 2 with a custom theme. The credits came with.
When they are ready to show off their fork, then we'll see their license and who they credit.

DoctorMalboro:
What if I want to fork the SMF's template system and to be still a part of SMF, is it possible?
