Subject: SDCC library license change to GPL+LE
from your LinkedIn profile I suppose that you could be the right person:
if you are Dmitry S. Obukhov who contributed the malloc and serial code to the SDCC project, please read the message below.
If you are not, please let me know that I'm contacting the wrong person. If you know the right Dmitry S. Obukhov, please forward him this mail. Sorry for disturbing you.
I'm Borut Razem and I'm working as a developer on SDCC project since
2002. I'm addressing you in the name of SDCC developers and users since you are the co-author of the SDCC library code, according to copyright notices in source files.
For the SDCC 3.0.0 release we plan to change the sdcc library license
from GLP / LGPL / "who knows what else" to GPL+Library Exception license, which allows to use the SDCC library in "non open source" (proprietary) projects. The SDCC compiler license will remain GPL.
The voting table is at http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sdcc/wiki/Library License Selection.
Can you please add your vote to the table or send it to me or to the
sddc-developer list firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd appreciate you
answer ASAP in any case, even if you don't agree with the license change.
Thank you for you contribution,
Borut & SDCC developers and users
