History

#1 Updated by Volker Fröhlich over 8 years ago

  • Assignee deleted (nobody -)
  • Pull Request or Patch supplied set to No

#2 Updated by Sandro Santilli over 8 years ago

  • Priority changed from Low to High
  • Must fix changed from No to Yes

Shouldn't also source file headers be updated ? They contain GPL2+ notices.
It seems this failed for 1.7.0, and is still unfixed in master git.
I took the liberty of raising priority from low to high (isn't it ?).

Note that ohloh stats have "unknown" as the licensing terms, I wanted to update but the ambiguity of in the source code doesn't make that straightforward.

Probably not - or did we change anything to fix this?

#12 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 7 years ago

  • Priority changed from Severe/Regression to Normal

Now it has been accepted, so no block. However, we probably need a team to evaluate licences before adding new code blocks

#13 Updated by Werner Macho over 7 years ago

I wanted to start with this on monday anyway (with volter). First I have to find out what is really necessary to get the license issue fixed..
Think I gotta search through all files and decide which license it should have..
Probably we should provide something like a suggested standard header for new files getting added to the project then..

#14 Updated by Paolo Cavallini about 7 years ago

  • Target version changed from Version 1.8.0 to Version 2.0.0

#15 Updated by Daniel Vaz over 6 years ago

This issue still exists? It would a good news release QGIS version 2.0.0 under GPLv3 terms.

#16 Updated by Paolo Cavallini almost 6 years ago

  • Target version changed from Version 2.0.0 to Future Release - High Priority

#17 Updated by Sandro Santilli almost 5 years ago

should this be closed or is there any real plan to switch to GPL3+ ?

#18 Updated by Werner Macho over 4 years ago

discussed a lot of times - new parts are GP3+ but I guess there are still parts with GPL2 - and without allowance of writer we cannot do anything.
To be honest I believe QGIS is now GPL3+ but I really don't know. Let's just say it's GPL :)

  • Regression? set to No
  • Easy fix? set to No

#20 Updated by Giovanni Manghi 9 months ago

  • Status changed from Open to Closed
