License review:

  • mapPreprocessor still contains a copy of the MIT license (before Gregor relicensed the source files under GPL); note: we don't distribute the compiled AIR app
  • mapRenderer's Bounds.as is missing a license statement
  • the open source Flex SDK is licensed under the MPL (not the "tri-license") and Adobe Flex SDK license (for proprietary bits); these are incompatible with the GPL when linked together (i.e., PiwikMap.swf); Gregor has given permission to relicense as LGPL to workaround this incompatibility:

    This is a free software license which is not a strong copyleft; unlike the X11 license, it has some complex restrictions that make it incompatible with the GNU GPL. That is, a module covered by the GPL and a module covered by the MPL cannot legally be linked together. We urge you not to use the MPL for this reason.

Not a release blocker.

Greg said by email that we can change license to LGPL. Is there more things involved in this ticket than setting the license.txt file to lgpl? thx

@robocoder commented on January 17th 2011 Contributor

Yes, I have to replace (or remove the dependency on) ByteTween as I've had no response.
