Re: [eigen] Important: Relicensing Eigen to MPL2

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I've got virtually no code committed, but for the record: I'm OK with whatever license Benoit chooses.

Why not dual license just to avoid the discussions about license compatibility?  I don't think mozilla's argument against it (difficulty reintegrating forks) is really relevant for eigen.
