Since this is a secret group that only a select few can access, I feel more confident bringing this idea up early.


We're considering the potential benefits of switching the Openfire license from GPL to Apache. Reasons:


  • A more open license will make it easier for Openfire to be used by a broader range of people.
  • It would encourage other commercial companies to get involved
  • Jive no longer sells Openfire commercially so having the GPL as a "stick" is no longer necessary


Would love feedback!
