Hi,

having a look for the GPL license/version, orgmode is
distributed with, couldn't see it at your page.

Shouldn't I have overlooked it, suggest an item at your homepage.

Thanks

Andreas Röhler

Isn't it so, that no license means "All Rights Reserved"?

Not sure, bu I think in Germany it is...


Anyway, if you receive Org-mode with emacs, it has just the same license
as emacs.



It has a license to kill though:

  C-h f org-export-kill-licensed-text RET

I see Carsten has added a link to the GPL. However, I think it's 
worthwhile specifically saying which *version* of the GPL.

This might seem a trivial matter. However, I am involved with another 
project where the maintainer moved the licence from GPL V2 to GPL V3, 
with the best of intentions. A large commercial company wanted to 
contribute considerable resources to the project, but they were unhappy 
with the V3 licence and wanted to continue with V2. As a result 
considerable effort was wasted in getting everyone who had contributed 
patches to the V3 version agreeing to them being "backported" to the V2 
licence.

I did that with org-info.js lately after reading a bit about GPL-3 and
seeing this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5G7FU5j2Uc

Sounds like it is good thing, even a neccessary one.

There is a link to it in the "contributing to Org" section.

Thanks too. Seeing the progress.

What about to link directly to the license text applying?
Which should provide for the case, people looking for org-mode don't have
much time to spent for this or another reason.

Anyway, understood it's an org-mode for the relaxed. :)

This is the Carsten-AI speeking.  Link to GPL on homepage established...

Thank you.

In the site is written:
----------------------------------------
It's free!
    Org is 
[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_software] 
[open source software]]

, it is free, like Emacs. 
------------------------------------------

I think that this is enough. 

If we think that an explicit link to the GPL is necessary
we can link:

[[http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html][free]] like Emacs

or 

[[http://www.gnu.org/licenses/licenses.html#GPL][free (GPL)]] like 

[[http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/][Emacs]]


Interestingly enough also the GNU Emacs web page does NOT have 
an *explicit* link to the licence of Emacs itself
neither to "free software" ;-)

cheers,
Giovanni
