Relicense to GPLv3+ with wide exception for all Free Software / Open Source projects + Business options. Nexedi stack is licensed under Free Software licenses with various exceptions that cover three business cases: - Free Software - Proprietary Software - Rebranding As long as one intends to develop Free Software based on Nexedi stack, no license cost is involved. Developing proprietary software based on Nexedi stack may require a proprietary exception license. Rebranding Nexedi stack is prohibited unless rebranding license is acquired. Through this licensing approach, Nexedi expects to encourage Free Software development without restrictions and at the same time create a framework for proprietary software to contribute to the long term sustainability of the Nexedi stack. Please see https://www.nexedi.com/licensing for details, rationale and options.
