Re: Attribution-ShareAlike License
If I were to try my own hand as an apprentice in the fine art of
debian-legal license analysis, I might say the following <grin>:
DFSG 1: Free Redistribution
Section 3c gives the right to use it in a collective work.
DFSG 2: Source Code
Not specifically addressed here (at least in terms of "preferred form for
modification"). I guess we would have to look at each work licensed under
this license individually to see if it includes something that we would
deem as "source".
It seems rather BSDish in that a person that receives it would be free
to distribute it without "source".
DFSG 3: Derived works
3b provides this, and 4b develops it. 8a provides the relicensing aspect.
DFSG 4: not applicable (no restriction on source code is being made)
DFSG 5, 6: No discrimination
There is no clause about commercial restrictions or any such thing.
DFSG 7: Distribution of license
8a meets this
DFSG 8: Not specific to Debian
Clearly this is fine here :-)
DFSG 9: Software contamination
Wording is fairly clear that the license of an individual document does
not hinder a collective work.
