|0000010||BirdFont||[All Projects] BirdFont||public||2013-04-11 01:58||2013-08-29 10:50|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.20|
|Summary||0000010: make birdfont license more clear|
|Description||I've put birdfont to Debian but it's rejected due to license reason.|
- dodo.py is introduced from doit, other author and license is MIT.
- they told me that "bavala.py should have different copyright details", could you clearfy it?
|Additional Information||pleae note it to AUTHORS file as "Eduardo Naufel Schettino (dodo.py under MIT license)" or so.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I believe Eduardo wrote bavala.py specifically for BirdFont.
We have not discussed licensing. I assume that he accepted the project license as terms for distributing the file. His name is already in the authors file.
I can add the MIT license if you or Eduardo think that it is better but I don't think there is a license issue that should prevent Debian from distributing BirdFont right now.
Thanks, it is not a licensing problem (like conflicts between GPL + other licenses), but just unclear copyright and license issue.
If it would be determined, then I'll put it to Debian package and upload it.
This issue will be fixed in the next release. See https://gitorious.org/birdfont/birdfont/commit/e4c4ea0e2b5e86f50b9f98784bc29f7d379ae427 Eduardo has agreed to add this copyright notice.
Other files in the scripts directory have been written be me and are released under the GNU GPL.
