License Discussion

  • Question: Should we move to GPL3+?
  • Question: Is our current licensing compatible with GPL3+ dependencies?

Inkscape's own software is licensed under GPL2+.

We depend on code that is licensed GPL3+:

We did depend on some Gimp widgets that were GPL3 but those have been replaced with new C++ widgets.

Current "Copying" file.

Discussion during board meeting:

bryce @inkchatbot 7:48 PM team_devel Mc, re: gpl2+ yes we can license as that and distribute inkscape as 3+. In fact we effectively had to do that (legally at least) due to the gimp 3+ bits.
