WhyMIT

Peter Howkins

It may seem odd that for a project licensed under the GNU LGPL we ask for contributions under a different license.

It was a regular request on the responses to the original "Open Source Motif and CDE" petition that the code be available under various open source license terms. It is hoped in the future to dual license CDE under both the GNU LGPL and a less restrictive license such as the BSD or MIT license.

By asking for contributions under the MIT license, we make this move easier without having to re-track down every contributor at the time of re-licensing.
