Hello all, Several weeks have passed and seems that there's no progress here; the mail copy sent to original discussion participants got no replies and one of the email address also bounces.
It would be great if anyone could help me get into contact with the original author of https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/file-manager-interface . Besides, I believe setting up a default license for freedesktop.org contents should be of higher priority given freedesktop.org's fame and importance in FLOSS world. -- Regards, Boyuan Yang 在 2018年3月22日星期四 CST 下午7:53:22，Thomas Kluyver 写道： > +1 to having a default license for the wiki contents. > > Code samples in a wiki are often meant to be copied and pasted, so it seems > appropriate to license them permissively, like an MIT license, or even > public domain.
