Re: RFC on MBF (non-freeness of "The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil")
* Leo 'costela' Antunes <email@example.com>, 2012-11-08, 16:25:
Ansgar has recently made an MBF against all packages including the
problematic JSON license term "The Software shall be used for Good, not
Evil". From what I've seen, most - if not all - of the affected
packages are using in-source libraries copyright JSON.org, which AFAIK
means convincing a single author to relicense would be enough (though
IANAL, of course).
Thomas Koch tried solving this issue more than two years ago and
upstream was apparently unwilling. Should we maybe try again?
As far as I can see Mr Crockford _enjoys_ being asked to change his
license. So no, please don't feed the troll.
