It still feels non-free to me. Agreed: I'm another one who feels that QPL 3b is non-free. It forces me to grant to the initial developer more rights to my code than he/she granted me to his/her own code. I feel that this does not satisfy DFSG 3, because I'm allowed to distribute my modifications "under the same terms as the license of the original software" to anyone I like *but* to the initial developer. The initial developer automatically gets a more permissive license grant for my modifications... -- | GnuPG Key ID = DD6DFCF4 | $ fortune Francesco | Key fingerprint = | Q: What is purple Poli | C979 F34B 27CE 5CD8 DC12 | and commutes? | 31B5 78F4 279B DD6D FCF4 | A: A boolean grape.
