Wesnoth struggles with App Store's GPL incompatibilities
Posted Jul 21, 2010 19:56 UTC (Wed) by dbruce (subscriber, #57948)
We could do that, or even just do without the functionality provided by the outside GPL3 code. Still, even as our own project, a non-free relicensing to accomodate the App Store would make me feel like Faust making a pact with Mephistopheles (or perhaps Anakin exploring the dark side of the force, if you prefer).
It's more a balance between our young users saying "Cool! Tux Math is on the iPhone/iPad!" on the one hand, and on the other hand me and the other devs bemoaning the rise of an incredibly locked-down computer platform. I'd like to get our program on it, but only if we can do so under proper Free Software terms.
