I’m interested in your opinion about a possible license change that could apply to the G’MIC software.
We actually thinking about some ways to improve the diffusion of G’MIC, and one of them would be to allow companies to integrate the G’MIC core in their proprietary software, without requiring they open their source code (contamination clause of the CeCILL/GPL license).
Of course, we want to keep G’MIC available as an open-source software, just switch to a more permissive
license. This would actually apply only on the G’MIC core, not the plug-in code for now.
Any thoughts on this ?
- Keep a copyleft license (CeCILL, GPL).
- Switch to a more permissive license (LGPL, CeCILL-C).
Feel free to share your viewpoints, particularly if you are a user or a contributor of the software !
