GPL vs. BSD : Huullauauahgha!
Evidently, when a chunk of software is simultaneously licensed under the BSD license and the GPL, it becomes unusable to projects that use the BSD license. No, wait. GPLed projects can borrow BSD licensed code, but not visa versa. No wait. When a chunk of code is under a dual BSD/GPL license, you get to pick which one to follow, which means you can ignore one of them.
Fuck. I hate this shit.
How about this :
I just want to write code and let other people use it. If people make improvements, I'd be happier if they gave their improvements back to me. Why is this so goddamn difficult?
