Another solution is maybe possible : let the code in AGPLv2, and put the doc in GPLv2. It seem to be possible (cf http://linuxfr.org/~naparuba/29363.html#1104785 in french sorry).

We just have to put a LICENCE file in the doc directory and put the GPLv2 HEADER in all docbook files.

Ps: that why I have licence problems....

A solution can be to pass in the GPLv2 and later in the first time. If we manage to go in the Nagios project, it won't be a problem anymore, and if we cannot, we rewrite all the doc (arg...) and we can move to GPLv3 and even AGPL.

Hi,

I'm looking at the Nagios' documentation import, but it's in Gplv2. Shinken was written in AGPL so I think we just cannot import it and it can be a problem in the future if we want an inclusion of Shinken in Nagios project. So we must think about leave the licence in AGPL but wrote our own doc and have problem with Nagios inclusion, or change the licence to Gplv2 to easy import doc, no problem for Nagios inclusion, but leave the Affero effect (if a user access to Shinken in the network, he must have access to the sources).

We can maybe drop the Affero licence and take the classic Gplv2. Affero is trully important for PHP like applications, but I'm wondering if it's a so good idea for Shinken.

What do you think about this?
