Can we please relicense?

Would the devs be opposed to re-licensing the code under something less intrusive? The GPL is obscene and makes a lot of developers wary. Understandably, this is less of a concern with these projects as the community is pretty darn close to dead.

Personally, I try to give Richard Stallman the least amount of credit that is possible.

It's not going to be particularly easy to re license all the sources since they were first published under the present license by their original authors and that license states that the original licensing must appear on any modified version of their code.

Meh yeah after looking at the sources more closely, you're definitely right. It's also pretty hard to tell who all contributed on something throughout the last decade or so.

Thanks!

We can write all the code again and changing variable names and stuff :p
And release that with a new licence...
