Re: [tdf-discuss] Licensing question


Hi Michael,

So: why does LibreOffice use the MPL?

        The MPLv2 has many advantages and some weaknesses, as do all licenses
depending of course on what you want to achieve. Having said that,
personally I believe it is a great choice for LibreOffice and what TDF
want to achieve. Some fairly large chunks of MPL code are also
distributed with the AOO binaries, it is a 'category-b license' in their
nomenclature.

        Either way - I don't believe the framing of your question is that
helpful, or takes account of the balance of contribution & momentum on
the ground. As such, I don't think this is likely to be a terribly
productive interaction no matter what some subset of user comments on
web news threads say today.

        All the best,

                Michael.
