we had some discussion in todays call about releasing some parts of MTJ in a permissive license. This would make it easier for anyone to extend MTJ. Since this year, the Eclipse foundation already accept to distribute example plugins as EDL (Eclipse Distribution License). This is a BSD-like license, This link
have some details about that.
the initial proposal that came in the call was to have:
- release all examples both as EPL and EDL
- release the UEI importer both as EPL and EDL (still need to both check if this is possible since it is not an example)
i really like this idea, but i would like to get a feedback from eveyone on the list to see if this make sense or not.
