Sorry this took me so long to file, but we need to look into the use of the dual (or is it tri?) license in some of the tests. If we find that we need to, I can roll them back to MPL-only (iirc, all the contributors are those active in Bugzilla development).
Here's my view: the Mozilla project picked the tri-license for particular reasons which are applicable to Mozilla, and in order to promote wide use of its code. Those reasons do not, in my view, apply to Bugzilla. In addition, I know there are some Bugzilla contributors who don't like the tri-license (Hixie, for one.) Any attempt to tri-license the entirety of Bugzilla would be a large effort for extremely little gain. We would need to contact anyone who'd ever contributed a patch - and that's a lot of people. If we are not going to tri-license the entire app, then I also think it's wrong to tri-license parts of it. We have found the hard way that having different licenses on different bits of code merely causes extreme confusion. I therefore think we should leave the Bugzilla standard licenses as MPL-only, and bring all files into line with that. Gerv
I'm with Gerv.... if you can make said arrangements with the existing contributors on the files that are currently multiply licensed, get them all changed back to MPL-only.
Dave: who is "you"? :-) That is, am I responsible for fixing this or is Zach? Gerv
I was assuming Zach, since he's the one that asked, and he's also the one that initially put the multi-license on most of those files.
To: joel, jake, justdave, ddk, and gerv, According to bonsai, you have all made changes to a test file covered by the dual-license (due to my fault in putting it there in the first place). In order to fix this problem (it has been decided that we just want MPL for all files), it would be great if you could pleast grant permission to relicense your code. I also grant permission to MPL (only MPL) my code. I'll post a patch soon, but I can't apply it without permission.
Comment on attachment 108680 [details] [diff] [review] Patch to all the people I just requested reviews from on this patch: granting review on this patch indicates your willingness to have your code in the testing suite relicensed as MPL-only (eliminating the dual MPL/GPL license).
Comment on attachment 108680 [details] [diff] [review] Patch I'm sure I've touched test files somewhere...
Comment on attachment 108680 [details] [diff] [review] Patch I grant permission to change the license on the code I contributed to Bugzilla (in test and anywhere else). Hopefully I'll have some time to start working on Bugzilla again soon. :^)
Patch checked in, I'm pretty sure (did a search for it) that I got all the GPL's, if you catch any that I missed, please let me know.
