Simple go with gpl and keep the core lgpl. No Idea who profits from lgpl, the open-source-project for sure does not.NirmandC wrote:No it's not, because it's still licensed under GPLv3+ which is a complete no-go for FreeCAD.
yes it does. The point is that one of the issues with GPL was OCC, that has been resolved but that was only one problem.
Guys, Werner post a detailed explanation about this with respect to LGPL and GPL (2, 2+ and 3) and compatibility etc. I don't claim to remember the details but it comes down to GPL3 is not compatible for inclusion with FreeCAD LGPL2 code in master.
This does not mean we can't use the code somewhat like we did with Tehgia, but it can't be part of FreeCAD or distributed with FreeCAD.
