No worries :) Feel free to use whatever license you want. It is your code.

However my point was that the code released with license other than Boost (or similar) cannot be included in Phobos. That's one thing. The second is, non liberal licenses put burden on commercial adoption and put risk on legal actions. I know that from the employee POV who worked for many corporations and was obliged to follow the rules.

The bottom line is that viral licenses (with varying aggressiveness) are in opposition to business. Yes, I know GPL is used by companies but the cost is high. To use analogy: you can live with viruses, but you need money for medicines.

BTW. Sorry if I sounded to harsh and forgive me stealing your announcement for my propaganda ;) I'll try to figure out a way to present my ideas in proper way before I have to many enemies.


No offense taken.
It's important for a project to have a fitting license.
I chose MPLv2 because I like the code to be free like BSD, for it to be able to be located in all sorts of project, but I still want the code to remain open source.

I will maybe change the license in the future, if needed.
But currently I don't see a reason to do it.
