Subject Re: Making license adjustment tools publicly available
Date Fri, 05 Feb 2016 00:25:51 GMT
It might be relevant that that both of those tools appear to be licensed
under ASL 2.0, which explicitly permits redistribution (presumably outside
the private area?). I would think it confusing to have an open source
license on software which is expected to remain private, or otherwise
restricted from redistribution. As such, it seems prudent to move them to a
more appropriate area. That's my opinion, anyway.
