''Applications which are intended to be run on a server'' can be
licenced under the GNU AGPL 3.0 or later
Rationale: KDE Store code is under AGPL
Question: should this be an option or a requirement for server software?
I agree with this change, but I think it should remain an option.


I would support making it mandatory, actually, or at least recommended, because for an end user a web service based on GPL software is no better than one based on proprietary software, because they cannot tell what software it is they're interacting with. Therefore, the AGPL closes an important hole in FOSS web services.

I don't feel very strongly about this, but to me it would make sense to at least recommend AGPL for web software we produce.
