I don't plan to change SolveSpace's license to the LGPL--I deliberately
wish and intend for anyone benefiting from this code to also share
theirs. Of course, FreeCAD does that in practice; but since the license
they've chosen doesn't actually require that, I don't see any way to
offer a compatible special exception license that isn't just equivalent
to re-licensing SolveSpace under the LGPL.
Sorry I can't offer a better suggestion here. I'm glad FreeCAD at least
has an extension model that has made this work possible (and I guess
that's perhaps well-developed for that reason, since I understand that
FreeCAD has hit this GPL/LGPL issue with other libraries too).
So what does all this GPL and LGPL stuff mean? I thought both Solvespace and FreeCAD are open source so why is there a problem?
