|[eigen] LGPLv3 for a C++ Pure Template Library ?|
[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.tuxfamily.org/eigen Archives ]
Hi List, (NOTE: Please keep eigen@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx in CC.) I would like to know if the LGPLv3 can be suitable for a C++ pure template library, where all the code is in headers? I asked the same question on this list in 2006 about the LGPLv2 and got this answer, http://osdir.com/ml/org.fsf.europe.discussion/2006-10/msg00091.html according to which the LGPLv2 is not suitable for a pure template library, and such libraries should instead use the GPL plus an exception. I would really like to be able to use an unmodified license, instead of having to resort to appending an exception. So I would be very happy if the LGPLv3 solved the problems of the LGPLv2 that prevented it from being usable for a pure template library. (I could also elaborate on why I do not use the GPL. I need my project to be usable by a wide range of other projects, some of which might be under BSD license, some others might be dual-licensed GPL/proprietary, etc. I just want to allow everybody to use my project without any worry). Best Regards, Benoît Jacob
