Florian suggested to ask this question here:
Would it be reasonable to add LGPL as license to the uploads to the TDF
At the moment we only allow <no license specified> and <Creative Commons
Attribution Share-Alike 3.0 Unported>
I'd like to add <LGPL 3.0+> as possible license and could imagine to
have <CC BY-SA + LGPL> as standard selection.
The background of my question:
At the moment we work on the LibO mimetype icons and upload the source
files to the wiki.
If they would be licensed right from the beginning under LGPL, the final
icons could easily be integrated in the product without asking every
contributor for licensing their work under LGPL.
This might be true for other graphics too when we start working on the
I could imagine other parts of the package that might be handled in a
similar way (menu icons, templates, gallery items ...).
I'm not a license expert, but nobody told me about negative aspects of
such a double license strategy by now, so I just wanted to post my ideas...
PS: Is the CC license upgradeable?
We know about the problems of LGPL without the "+" feature. Even if the
wiki content might not be as crucial as product code, an upgradeable
license could make sense IMHO.
