So, if CNRI gives permission for rubygem-passenger to use mod_scgi
GPLv2, that would resolve the licensing issue. Note that I said 1.10. If they
only relicense their latest version, that won't do the trick.
I've asked for re-licensing of mod_scgi-1.09 and later versions (including
If rubygem-passenger is relicensed to MIT, they're no longer
the mod_scgi 1.10 licensing, but they're _still_ in violation of the mod_scgi
1.10 licensing terms, which state:
"3. In the event Licensee prepares a derivative work that is based on
or incorporates scgi-1.9 or any part thereof, and wants to make
the derivative work available to others as provided herein, then
Licensee hereby agrees to include in any such work a brief
summary of the changes made to scgi-1.9."
They need to add a summary of the changes made to the mod_scgi code used, and
then they'd be in the clear.
Phusion Passenger's upstream told me they would list the changes anyway.
