SMF won't be licensed under the GPL... but will be free...

Derek

I'm sorry if I'm being intrusive or annoying. :P

SMF is based on YabbSE, which was at one point GPLed. Shouldn't that force SMF to be released under the GPL?

Tyris

But its ALSO written by the original authors (mostly I believe), AND its been written from the groud up... ie: you'd be lucky to find a few bits of code that are the same.
So whilst it is based of it... only the theory is really based of it... the code is all new.

Derek

Although I'm sure this has been taken care of already by the fine people at SMF(formerly and currently of YabbSE ;)), I thought I'd post it here anyways. It took me forever to find it in the GPL FAQ, but here it is:

Quote
I heard that someone got a copy of a GPL'ed program under another license. Is this possible?

The GNU GPL does not give users permission to attach other licenses to the program. But the copyright holder for a program can release it under several different licenses in parallel. One of them may be the GNU GPL.

The license that comes in your copy, assuming it was put in by the copyright holder and that you got the copy legitimately, is the license that applies to your copy.

David

Yes, since Lewis Media is the copyright holder they/we can decide which license to release it under.
This space for rent.

See, this is part of what most people don't understand about International Copyright Law.  Being the owner is like being root - there is literally nothing you cannot do.  Not being the owner is like... not being the owner.  Just because the GPL gives you a lot of rights doesn't mean it gives you all or ever takes any away.

Heh...

I forgot to say is a temporal license, that needs to be polished before the release.

Sorry for the misunderstand. I just gave a link for ppl to figure out how it will like.

The license will be put in a official link here.

and what about language .. YSE will be in slovenian .. and later when i will upgrade .. i will have to set back to english to upggrade .. or?

Oldiesmann

Slovenian? That's kind of an odd language...

Also, a few months is better than nothing. Your competitors (who shall remain nameless - you know who I'm talking about) are still working on their next major release, which they have been for most of this year...
