I take it you are referring to this: http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?item_id=OFL_web I understand and agree with all your points. From what he's let on, the license has been drafted, he just hasn't found the time to prepare everything else. When he does upload all the new stuff, I will check with Fedora legal if there is any ambiguity and if the license is indeed incompatible, I will bring up dual licensing and point him to the SIL OFL. _______________________________________________ devel mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to devel-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org
