A small victory

Wed 28 May 2008

During a search for some open source software, I came across a curiously licensed project. A brief snippet:

You may copy, distribute and use the Software according to the Gnu Public License (GPL) as long as you agree to and comply with any and all conditions in this license.

Limitations

  1. You may with this license only use the Software for non- commercial purposes. [...]

A bit saddened by the missing freedom 0, I wrote the author merely asking for clarification, and in response he's declared intent to relicense under GPLv3. This is only a small victory, as it doesn't currently build for Linux, but it has in the past and I think getting it to build again is a proper reward for this positive step.
