GPL Libraries suck
Published April 10th, 2005
I am fed up with people creating LIBRARIES and then licening them under the GPL. Please use the LGPL. Thanks.
Todays disapointment was in regards to the Xapian search engine library.
I am still trying to find a full text search library to embed with mod_mbox — Lucene4c isn’t ‘there’ yet.
It is just frustrating to be working on an open source project, and be unable to use what looks like a cool open source library.
