[ba-unrev-talk] GPL and Fle3

Hello,    (01)

One more time about the GNU General Public Licence (GPL) and the Fle3
software (http://fle3.uiah.fi) released under the GPL.    (02)

After discussing with several developers here and there we came up to
the conclusion that actually the GPL fits very well to the aims of the
Fle3 project. The Fle3 is made with tax payers money, in a public 
research institution, as a part of a research on computer supported 
collaborative learning (CSCL). We hope that the Fle3 software and other 
results of the research will benefit public schools and universities.    (03)

The idea of the Fle3 is to be open for development that will benefit the 
whole developer and user community. GPL guarantees this. For this reason 
the GPL fits better to our aims than the LGPL (or any other "less" 
general public licence). We understand that in some other situation the 
LGPL would be more appropriate.    (04)

Best regards,    (05)
