I'm also reserving the ability to add future versions of the GPL (as published by the Free Software Foundation) to the license. I will not be have a "GPLv2 or later" clause since I don't want the FSF to upgrade the license without my review. Even though I like the AGPL for web /applications/, I don't think it's appropriate for infrastructure such as Rainbows!. Graham (Cc-ed) is the only contributor to Rainbows! other than myself, and his patch was only trivial bugfix which shouldn't prevent me from making a minor change to the license. Rainbows! depends on Unicorn, and Unicorn (and Mongrel) has more contributors and thus harder to add the GPLv3 to...  bogomips.org/rainbows.git/patch?id=a34b1048d05397f72ad579fcef72cbb1a9e9d8bc -- Eric Wong _______________________________________________ Rainbows! mailing list - rainbows-talk-GrnCvJ7WPxnNLxjTenLetw@public.gmane.org http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/rainbows-talk Do not quote signatures (like this one) or top post when replying
