[eigen] Relicensing Eigen

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.tuxfamily.org/eigen Archives ]

Hi everyone,

Has there been any progress on moving to MPL 2.0 (or, even better, BSD/MIT)? I am now in the difficult position of not being able to use Eigen, or even my own contributions to Eigen, due to the license. LGPL3 compliance is not as trivial as the Eigen webpage suggests, according to an OSS-knowledgeable lawyer I have talked to about Eigen. Removing an Eigen dependency from my code is not trivial.

If the relicense can't happen, and on a reasonably short timeframe (a month or two) I may have to consider starting an API compatible re-implementation of the subset of Eigen we need. Obviously, this is the last thing I want to do.
