Huh? You can build on top of lovely.rating without making the code GPL.
Technically true, but doesn't seem practically feasible.
Second, it is a departure
from the status quo, such decisions should be made by the ZF.
This is not true at all. The status quo is: You can only check in ZPL code.
Anything you build on top of lovely.rating can be ZPL, since
schooltool.requirement is used as a library that is not extended.
In fact, the repository has many components checked in that have other
licenses including the GPL. As long as it is clearly marked and documented,
there is no problem.
That's seems to me to be an over-simplification, but I'd like to hear
what the ZF board has to say on the issue.
