#128 Firelib has no free license

Modules (45)

The license of Firelib is not free. It restricts commercial use and is definitely not public domain.

You could try to ask the developers, if they'd re-license it under the terms of the GPL -- especially they deprecated it and switched to Fire Behavior Software Developer Kit.

If there already is such an agreement, please document it.
