Is there any particular reason why Psyco is under GPL
and not some kind of Python-like license?
Logged In: YES
Yes, there is a reason: it was some kind of research project
and I didn't want people to add support for their own specific
features without releasing it back again. This might have
killed the project at the beginning. Now it is (a bit) more
mature, and I am considering relicensing.
A Python-style license (probably Python's own) is of course
the plan. The people who contributed a bit of code to Psyco
know about this and have already agreed to the idea.
So definitely, I will re-license Psyco soon.
I am about to re-license Psyco. I am considering using the MIT License
for its simplicity, but one might argue that the Python License itself
would be a better fit. It seems however that the latter (in either the
old CNRI version or by the Python Software Foundation) is explicitely
written as an agreement between the CNRI or PSF and the user, which
is not the case for Psyco. Besides, the minimalistic MIT License suits
I chose the MIT License.
