Parent article: Launchpad source released
Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy,
distribute, study, change and improve the software. Read
read the thing and now blindly waved link around you'd know this
You should also have the freedom to make modifications
and use them privately in your own work or play, without even mentioning
that they exist. If you do publish your changes, you should not be required
to notify anyone in particular, or in any particular
And were you somewhat observant you'd remember that
years ago Stallman was adamant about this right (for example
here). Sure rise
of the Web and SaaS approa changed his position and now he considers AGPL
free and even changed the GPLv3 to accomodate, but in my view AGPL was and
is a non-free license, sorry.
P.S. Oh - and it's strictly prohibited here, too. Just a matter of
policy, we are not urhing anyone to boycott it, but we sure as hell will
not be using any code released under this license - launchpad included.
