Is there any reason to distribute CDK under LGPL license?
CDK was licensed LGPL because it was based on CompChem, Jmol, and
JChemPaint were LGPL.
Why not apache license?
I do not remember the reasons why those tools had that license.
If I had to (chance to) change the license of the CDK (which involves
getting in contact with a lot of people and getting approval) is to
move to BSD or MIT, not Apache...
What would it add? People already can embed the CDK in proprietary
software; I know the linking is always a bit unclear, but to me
(personally), anything not changing the CDK classes itself, is
Why would you not choose LGPL?
Also, did you guys thought about incubating CDK as an apache project??
What would that add? I sounds to me we would get a lot more formal
meeting if we would, distracting us from the work... ?
My 2 cents...
