Subject Re: CC-SA 4.0
Date Sat, 21 Jan 2017 03:06:55 GMT
We decided just to dump it. It didn't seem worth the effort for what little it did for us.

That being said, we got a question about another piece of CC licensed content. It's the MaxMind
DB GeoLite2 Database. So it's not code, but it's not exactly an image, video, or sound file
either. Honestly, to me it seems like this is something better left to the end user to download,
but if we can at least bundle it until we are able to make that change that would be very
helpful.

Thanks.
