Okay, this is a stupid question: will it still be free? Because Wikipedia said that you sometimes have to pay for a NPO software.

Always free of course.

The first step to a new direction is done.

I hope it can reassure all people.

Great news! :D
My Mods

Sugested that too. Hey ho. I'd link you to the original discussion but it's not visible to most people (seekrit team board stuff that is more dangerous than wikileaks).


Don't PM me for support! Use the appropriate support board!

It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.

Very excellent news to hear! SMF started as a project called YaBB SE and the intention was to always offer up free software and let the community dictate it's path. It's been a long road but it's great to see that the project has finally achieved it's intended goal.  :D

Simple Machines Forum is developed in an open source environment and built by harnessing the creative power of several programmers around the world.  The new organizational structure returns us to our roots as a community owned project.

Does this mean that licensing for SMF will change from the current proprietary free license that SMF distributes under to a GNU license?

Open software but not software libre.
Not free as freedom.

and what was the point of that comment?   Our formation as an NPO has nothing, what-so-ever to do with the license.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support forums.  Thank you.
