new Joomla GPL compliance group

Post by mattm » Thu Jun 28, 2007 11:17 am

I would like to suggest the creation of a group and with the permission of Joomla call it  Joomla GPL-C .

GPL-C (being short for GPL Compliance) this groups focus will be on compliance issues. Although most questions cannot be immediately answered. I would like to get together a group of individuals. to work on what GPL compliance means.

What is the requirement to be a member?
  • You must support GPL 100%.
  • You must become 100% Gpl compliant.
  • be willing to accept criticism and build on it.
  • be willing to work with individuals that may not have the same opinion as you.
Who will be in this group?

Hopefully this group will include..
  • Joomla team members
  • 3rd party developers
  • Users
Our main goal will be as The Joomla team stated to clean our own house's .
As a Group we will find solutions to become 100% compliant.
Once we have found solutions we will share them with the entire Joomla community.

If this is acceptable to the Joomla team please leave this topic posted.
If the Joomla team finds this topic not acceptable please delete this post.
if you are interested in becoming a member please pm me.
or send me an email

I think that is a good creative idea that probably could be implemented in some form.
So we must fix our vision not merely on the negative expulsion of war, but upon the positive affirmation of peace. MLK 1964.

Is there any chance this can be moved to the reg lounge I would like to get some feedback from everyone on this subject.

I would however like to know if there would be problem with me setting something like this up. I dont want to step on any toes in the process.
