[389-users] Re: Plugin development licensing


Has there been any updates on this issue?
From what I can tell, there is still a discrepancy between the 389-ds FAQ (which mentions the plugin license exception) and the actual 389-ds license.
I'd like to know if reinstating the license exception is still on the cards, or if we should prepare our plugins to be released under GPLv3.

I have a question regarding the licensing of developed 389-ds plugins.

indicates that the Directory Server core code is licensed under a GPL + Exception license that allows non-GPL 389-ds plugins to link to 389-ds and to use specific header files.

However, the LICENSE file in the current 389-ds-base source does not contain this exception. It was apparently removed by the following commit, when the license was changed to GPLv3+:


Does that means that the license exception does not apply to the current version of 389-ds?
