Re: GPL + exceptions issue
Hi DMG,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I was off traveling a bit, so if I may have missed some interim conversations -- hopefully I am addressing the same topic that you are. I don't see how the conjunction of 2 licenses will work with our model -- we track "a license". I thought that we had previously agreed that the licenses would be distinct (resulting in, say, "GPL 2.0 with Classpath Exception" as a single license). I am in the commercial world, and we need to treat the License + exception as a distinct "agreement".

The list will grow n^2 to the number of GPL licenses. Why not consider
the exception as a conjunction of two licenses for the purpose of the
spec? One the GPL, and the other the exception. This will also help to
simplify new exceptions as they appear.
