Thanks for looking into this, we do need to sort the licensing out.
A couple of notes:
1) The patch removes *all* Conductor routes and replaces them with a
file containing the license header only.
Thanks for your feedback, just discovered that this file was modified with my old
version of the script, revert back the file show that
work without problems.
2) The `COPYING` file should be updated to contain the full text of
the new license (with this patch it still contains GPLv2).
Yes, i thought that this operation need to be multistage, so first i started fixing just
our files. (The redmine task was for that) but thanks, i think we can
sort out all the changes for license in one shoot.
3) Did you go through all the libraries that we're using and
they're ASL v. 2.0 compatible?
GPLv2 isn't, for example. Couple of weeks back I went through all
with the change.
But we need to check all the gems and other libraries we may depend
on. If any are GPLv2 (or under any other incompatible license), we
need to replace them if we want to have our code under ASL.
Good catch mate :) I've to say that i didn't check the compatibility because i
thought that GPL and ASL was compatible, but just from v3, so this is another task to be
added to Redmine.
4) I was hoping that as we're changing the licences anyway, we
use that occasion to get rid of twentysomething-line blob of
legalese on top of every file.
I think it would be much better to mention the license in README and
then have something like this on top of every file:
# Licensed under Apache Software License 2.0. See the README and
I was hoping so as well, but seems that this license have to be added in every file in the
way it is now :( But I'll keep search for more informations.
Thanks again for doing this. I can give you a hand if you want to.
Definitely! Thanks Tomas :)
