License: have we even discussed a license yet? Who chose it? I'm not terribly opposed to a 3-clause BSD, but...? - RB 00:39, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Joachim I prefer the LPGL it's restricts the usage of the code somewhat more. When its integrated in other (closed source) tooling which is published, they must publish that the tool uses this code.

- Joachim GNU Library or "Lesser" General Public License (LGPL) (http://www.opensource.org/licenses/alphabetical)
- Agreed. I sit on the fence between BSD and GPL: the business half of me agrees that open licensing should place as few restrictions or qualifications as possible, whereas the idealist/OSS side wants to ensure the project's freedom. The LGPL is a more reasonable balance, encouraging widespread use but ensuring modifications' freedom.
