The exception thing was already discussed as not sufficing. I don't want the LGPL as for the reasons I've stated.Again, as long as you don't copy-paste code from someone else's program, then IMHO the legal risk is pretty much zero, as the only people with the right to sue (i.e. developers) (a) have no interest in doing so and (b) would likely have their case thrown out of court citing implicit consent.
And if all your contributors are alive and can be contacted, then ask them to consent to an explicit license change adding the exception (or switching to LGPL) and be done with it. See here: http://orbiter-forum.com/showthread.php?p=468312&postcount=36
You OTOH seems to be fine with that. That's cool :thumbup:.
ATM my developer time is completely free, so I can stroll around here a bit. Nobody is obliged to post here, AFAIK.Honestly, I don't really see what the fuss is all about. This thread has probably used more developer time than it would take to solve the problem.
