Re: New License List website features


Alexios Zavras
 

Ehmmm... someone suggests today (and gets accepted next month) a license of a software written in the '90s, and the license text points to a website that has not existed for years.

No current timestamp would be useful.
(this is actually a pretty common case)

Die 14. 11. 20 et hora 00:35 Gary O'Neall scripsit:
Alexios is correct - the last checked is just the last time the tool
was run. The wording is ambiguous - I think I'll just removed the
last checked string and denote the link as "No Longer Live".
Makes sense to me.

Another option could be to simply store the timestamp of when the license was suggested/added instead. That one we can be at least fairly sure a human checked as well.


cheers,
