FSF Releases "Last Call" Draft of GPLv3

Postby AgenT » 2007-06-04 23:46

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) today released the fourth and “last call” draft for version 3 of the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL), the world's most widely used free software license. The Foundation will hear comments on the latest draft for 29 days, and expects to officially publish the license on Friday, June 29, 2007.
If you have any concerns or suggestions, now is the time to act!

For those that are concerned about recent issues involving Microsoft and Novell, Xandros and LG should really get involved in the GPLv3 drafting processs. There is a nice and open draft editing page where people can highlight text and give their comment to help the GPLv3 be as strong as possible.

You can help with anything from correcting vague language that a company like Microsoft may try to take advantage of in the future, to help decide how previous Microsoft deals are dealt with.

Right now, the GPLv3 will NOT break the current deals that happen. I would highly recommend anyone who does not agree to this to voice their opinion so that the final version WILL break any pacts such as the Microsoft-Novell/Xandros/LG.

Make your voice heard! Make a difference!
