Personally I still think it's not a very good idea to depend on any open-core infrastructure software, due to the possibility of conflict of interrest in the future.
Eq. the company behind the software will not accept your patches as it clashes with their business model & proprietary code additions they sell to their customers. Then you will have to maintain those patches pretty much indefinitely. Might as well use a fully open source solution to avoid such future pitfalls. > > Felix > _______________________________________________ > devel mailing list -- email@example.com > To unsubscribe send an email to devel-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org > Fedora Code of Conduct: > https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/project/code-of-conduct/ > List Guidelines: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines > List Archives: > https://firstname.lastname@example.org _______________________________________________ devel mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to devel-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org Fedora Code of Conduct: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/project/code-of-conduct/ List Guidelines: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines List Archives: https://firstname.lastname@example.org
