[Win32utils-devel] The dreaded licensing question

Hi all,

So far I have put all of the Win32Utils code (and all of my OSS Ruby stuff,
really) under "Ruby's" license. Ruby's license is a modified version of the
LGPL. I was thinking of switching to Artistic 2.0, which is still "GPL
compatible":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artistic_License
http://www.opensource.org/licenses/artistic-license-2.0.php
http://www.theperlreview.com/Interviews/allison-randal-artistic-license.html

I like it because it's short and relatively easy to read.

And it held up in US court:

What do you think? Does anyone object to switching to Artistic 2.0?

Regards,

Dan
