Ticket #15592 (assigned)

Opened 3 years ago

Last modified 3 years ago

License section in terms of use incomplete

Reported by: auria Owned by: ctsai
Keywords: SUPPORT PEND Cc:
Private: no


I am referring to this :


While the documentation clearly states which licenses are acceptable for source code, most software will also have data files - especially games. The current definition of acceptable licenses is that of the OSI terms, which require that the source code be provided - this is clearly not feasible for music, sound, 3D models or bitmap images. Licenses like Creative-Commons-BY-SA 3.0 are more appropriate to that kind of content (and are DFSG-compliant so by strict standards are also considered open).
I would therefore appreciate if the terms could be updated to clarify this ambiguity
