Subject OpenOffice.org: Question to IBM regarding license of Lotus Symphony
Date Sat, 04 Jun 2011 10:24:07 GMT
I am involved in both copyleft and non-copyleft projects and write this
as a member of the Open Source community in the broad sense.

Some people wrote that the only option to make OpenOffice.org /
LibreOffice code legally usable within IBM Lotus Symphony is to use a
non-copyleft license such as ASL2.

That does not seem to be true:
I suppose IBM could make Lotus Symphony source code available under a
license which is compatible with LGPL3.

I also notice that IBM currently does not sell Lotus Symphony but makes
binaries available for free:
http://www.ibm.com/software/lotus/symphony

So my question to IBM is:
Are you willing to consider open-sourcing IBM Lotus Symphony (even if
only parts of it) ?
If yes: which licenses would IBM be willing to consider ?

If those questions have already been answered than forgive me, there are
a lot of mails to read regarding the OpenOffice.org / Apache Incubator
proposal ;-)

Cheers,
Andreas
