SMF Forum 2.0 released under BSD license. Bridge allowed?

Post by hefesto » Wed Jul 06, 2011 12:22 pm

Hi there

I'm one of those users who followed close the "break up" of Joomla and SMF when Joomla changed its vision about GPL, and decided to "enforce it strongly". I don't want to recall that discussion, but only remember that it resulted in the Joomla-SMF bridge being discontinued, which became a catastrophe for some users (like me).

Now that the new SMF 2.0 stable version has been released under BSD (modified 3-clause version) which seems to be compatible with GPL, would a Joomla-SMF bridge extension for Joomla be "legal" from Joomla's point of view?

I'm sure it would be a great new for those of us who didn't migrate their forums and created a "custom" sort of integration that such bridge would be permitted now.

As far as I understand it would be legal from SMF 2.0 and up.

Thanks for your reply koter.

That's what I think. Let's see if at least JFusion guys release the long promised 2.0 plugin soon :).

Cheers!
