Re: [yast-devel] License of yast++

second question related to yast++. What license we should use? As I plan to
create initial package, I need specify license ( and packaging tasks
include explicit license checker ). What suggestion do you have? MIT, BSD
or some kind of GPL?
I talked to our licenses expert and want to summarize the outcome of the
discussion: There are a lot of different possibilities and GPL v3 fits well
for yast++. Libraries could be LGPL v3 if they are used by others. Otherwise
GPL v3 is also appropriate.
