Please use license GPL v2 or later in plugin validator
|Reported by:||mascellani@…||Owned by:||team|
I am a maintainer of the josm-plugins package in Debian. I would like to
include your plugin in our package, but there are some legal reasons.
You do not specify any license for your plugin, just include the GPL-2
text. Moreover, in the plugins there are files under an Apache-2.0
license, which is _not_ GPL-2 compatible (but it is GPL-3 compatible).
The result is that the compiled binary is not distributable (because
there is no legal way to put Apache-2.0 and GPL-2 together). Could you
please add a file in the pluin repository, stating that the plugin is
distributed under a GPL-2 _or later_ license? This would enable the
users (and Debian) to use your precious plugin under a GPL-3+ license.
Francisco Santos and Gabriel Ebner (contributor to the plugin) already
agreed to use GPL v2 or later.
