MPL Update: New Changes For Review

We’ve published the first draft of our proposed changes to sections 2 and 3 of the MPL.

In particular, in what I’m sure will be a popular move, we’ve revised and simplified the notification and documentation requirements in section 3 (the part responsible for the boilerplate headers in every file).

We are very interested in feedback! Please do read and comment in the commenting tool.

  1. Maybe I just haven’t paid attention. But while I have seen some posts about you wanting to modernize and simplify the MPL, I don’t think I’ve seen anything about “why the MPL”. That is, what is it trying to accomplice as opposed to e.g. the LGPL (that seem to be popular http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebKit ). So it’s kind of hard to give feedback (not that I am qualified).

  2. AndersH: See the FAQ, particularly the section on “altering the scope” (which is a unique feature of the MPL family of licences).
