Interesting link - I haven't seen it that way so far.
Yes, but look at the heat Microsoft took for promoting CPL, lemme see, like these:
We had some discussions about licenses in the past, among other
suggestions we talked about moving Mondrian and JPivot to Apache and
Eclipse License. Its a strong interest of Tonbeller to make Mondrian
and JPivot widely used software because the more its used the more
developers will improve it. Especially Ed pointed out that the CPL has
some problems that prevent JPivot and Mondrian from being used at SAS.
This is not in the interest of Tonbeller. So (at that time in the past)
I talked to Tonbeller management to move to either Apache License or
Eclipse License, and they agreed with the license change provided that
Mondrian would do so too. But Mondrian did not do it.
- Anything we talk about or agree on for Mondrian does not mean that JPivot
will do the same thing.
Sure but in the past Tonbeller has indicated a desire to keep the licenses harmonized.
Tonbeller would like to see JPivot under a license that is acceptable
for companies like SAS because that would increase usage and
development. I could talk to Tonbeller management once more, but things
would be easier for me if the future Mondrian license would be clear
