For quite a while now I’ve been working on an updated mozilla.org License Policy. This document has two parts:
- A prescriptive part which says what licences are and aren’t permitted for what parts of our code. There have been no changes here so this shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, but it is now hopefully explained in a clearer way.
- A descriptive part which says what licences currently apply to what parts of our code. This information has never been gathered in one place before, and should hopefully be helpful to people wanting to use our code in other contexts.
Please review the draft document, particularly if you are the owner of a mozilla.org project like Bugzilla, Rhino, Tinderbox etc. and make sure that you understand the prescriptive parts, and that the descriptive parts are correct :-) If either of them seems wrong, let me know and I will investigate.
