Hi,

Geeklog is licensed under a GNU GPL license and so you can basicly use it for free, meaning you don´t have to cash up any licensee fee to the great guys here at Geeklog.

However if you really like it you can offcourse make a donation, but basicly you just start with downloading GL and exploring this great product.

If your question was with regards to the new GL2, I guess it will also be licensed under the GNU GPL, but I am just a happy user, so any of the developers should confirm.

A really happy GL user.

While GL2 will still be open source, it will most likely not use the GPL. The last (brief) discussion about this was back in December. No final decision has been made yet, though.

Hi Dirk,

I tried to find the relevant bit, but not sure ...

Message: 10

I say dual license. This would force us to take all community based
contributions and rewrite them into GL2 (ala MySQL) but it gives us
flexiblity. The only thing I want to prevent is ISP's leeching from us
by offering GL2 as a service offering and not giving anything back. I'm
not saying they have to give money (which would be nice) but hosting
(like pair does now) or some other value add for the project would be nice.

Just my two cents.

Was this the quote, if so what will be the impact for the community when GL gets away from GNU GPL ?

Just curious,

For the average user, there won't be any difference. We ran into a few quirks with the GPL and commercial use (Tony mentions one example in the paragraph you quoted), so that's why we're thinking about using a different license.

Actually, if we were to go dual license, then the second license could very well be the GPL again.

But since I haven't contributed a single line of code to GL2 yet, I'm almost as much an innocent bystander as you are Mr. Green

bye, Dirk
