Subject RE: Is Qt the right choice ??
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2015 14:54:38 GMT
I've said my piece about what I consider the hazards of a Qt-first approach, even as an example.
 

However, I was pointed to an important policy document as part of a separate discussion. 
I recommend that folks look at <http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#prohibited>
and the statement "Can Apache Projects Rely on Components whose Licensing Affects the Apache
Project?"  

I recommend that passage because it provides the yardstick for acceptable Optional dependencies
and how they are handled.  This certainly applies to Category X (such as [L]GPL) dependencies.

Please keep that in mind.

I will now shut up about that.

 - Dennis

please remember the resistance is pretty isolated, and please believe I had
not made my suggestion about an editor framework had I not had a qualified
idea that it is acceptable.
