This commercial driver has been published as an extension:
http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/project/openoffice-sqlite-odbc-driver
Is it normal?

Re: SQLite ODBC driver for Libra and OpenOffice

2015-10-13 Thread Pedro Giffuni

About commercial extensions ...

It's fine. We want to encourage people to use OpenOffice, and even if 
they don't
give anything back to us, building a sustainable business market around 
it will
help us be a real alternative to the commercial options. If people can 
only make

a business around MS Office, it is likely they will only develop there.

Of course, anyone else is free to develop a cheaper or free version ;).

Pedro.

While the vast (95%+, I would say; maybe even 99%+) majority of 
extensions have a Free and Open Source license (and most of them, 
additionally, are available at no cost) I think that a few "proprietary 
and commercial" extensions do exist.


A questionable behavior, though, is that they stated the license is 
"Creative Commons Attribution": 
http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/search?query=_by=created_order=DESC 
and it looks like they should be contacted and the wrong license 
indication rectified.


Regards,
  Andrea.

Hi Denis,

I've copied our "dev" list on this reply. Hopefully we'll get some testing
on your new driver soon, and after that, we can likely add a link to your
information page.

Thank you for contacting AOO.
