30 check-ins related to "bsd-vs-gpl"

2019-07-17

Reworked several sections of the fossil-v-git.wiki doc as sub-sections of "Linux vs. SQLite", which now acts as a frame for those sections. Some of these sections are expanded while others disappear entirely, most especially the "BSD vs GPL" argument that we started off on the now-merged branch to try and refine. We replace a discussion of licensing with one of community structure and our approach to patch acceptance, which is more of what the old licensing discussion was trying to get at without getting into the details of software licensing per se. check-in: 69ec89b5 user: wyoung tags: trunk

Reduced redundancy in the new feature set size vs ease of use discussion in fossil-v-git. Closed-Leaf check-in: a52e6845 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
15:05
Rewrote the "Accepting Contributions" section of the fossil-v-git doc to focus on the size of each tool in terms of SLOC and features, rather than on licensing details. check-in: 5fe84e70 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl

Fixed some grammar errors in fossil-v-git's new "Accepting Contributions" material. check-in: 34d758bf user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
12:25
Small tweak to prev check-in: d1c61803 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
12:24
Turned a redundancy in the "Scale" section of fossil-v-git into a clearer point. Also added a bit on Fossil's later birthday and our take on its consequences. check-in: 30a74d7e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
12:12
Renamed named anchor for "Accepting Contributions" in fossil-v-git from "license" to "contrib". check-in: 074b896e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
12:11
Re-cast the "BSD vs GPL" section as "Accepting Contributions." In the end, that's what the difference in license amounts to. This makes the section longer, but the change includes a link to skip past the actual licensing discussion for those who don't want to read our attempt at an unbiased discussion of GPL vs BSD, since even if we've succeded, we won't always agree with the user's biases! check-in: 75e93e35 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
11:37
Another bit of prose polishing in fossil-v-git check-in: fcdefd97 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
11:28
Prose polishing in the "License" section of fossil-v-git check-in: eebd7135 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
11:02
Moved the "BSD vs GPL" section up in the fossil-v-git doc and made it a sub-section of a new "Linux vs SQLite" section which has two other sub-sections: "Development Organization," which contains an expanded version of what used to be called "Cathedral vs. Bazaar" and "Scale," which contains what is left of the prior version's "Linux vs. SQLite" section. These are sub-sections of a common parent because they were mutually repetitive, and they're all aspects of the "Linux vs. SQLite" comparison, not separate things at all. check-in: bab2656d user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl

Typo fix check-in: bd0b86e9 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
16:40
Added "and use" to fossil-v-git: the license has effects that extend beyond design and implementation. check-in: 2cc9036e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
16:39
Prose tightening tweak check-in: d2a77c30 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
16:38
Reduced repeition of the "deisgn and implementation" bits of "Fossil vs Git" in the new "GPL vs BSD" material. check-in: 4f293ddf user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
16:33
Rewrote the opening paragraph to "GPL vs BSD" in "Fossil vs Git" doc to make it clear that we're not trying to persuade you to make our same choice. Also removed two paragraphs making a judgement about the nature of each license for the same reason. check-in: d48fdb41 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
15:46
Moved a sentence from the final paragraph up to the first in the "GPL vs BSD" section of the "Fossil vs. Git" doc. It was something of a non-sequitur where it was, and in its new position, it serves to bookend the discussion: we lay out our proposition at the top and come to a conclusion that we believe supports that proposition by the end. check-in: cb1b007c user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
15:41
Removed a final sentence in a paragraph that basically just restated the paragraph in the new Fossil vs Git doc. check-in: f5a39a7e user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
15:29
Distilled the points about "GPL + CLA = commrecial interests" to only the bits essential to the "Fossil vs Git" argument. check-in: ba1fa73b user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
14:53
Applied rewording suggested in https://fossil-scm.org/forum/forumpost/1af94ddea9 check-in: 840f2b39 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
14:51
Toned down the "corporate overlord" stuff in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: 13392797 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
14:43
Changed "pneumatic ratchet wrench" to "impact wrench" and added a Wikipedia link to make an analogy clearer in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: 6e338346 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
14:15
Clarified the consequences of a CLA on Fossil and on FOSS projects in general in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: fffa6769 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
13:58
Clarity tweak to the "why CLA + BSD" justification in the "Fossil vs Git" doc. check-in: 633830fe user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
13:57
Better text justifying the use of a CLA in conjunction with the GPL in the "Fossil vs Git" article. check-in: 838c9efe user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
13:25
Merged in Linux vs SQLite stuff from trunk check-in: f5321731 user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl
13:24
Clarified the scale of the Linux vs SQLite projects in the same-named section of the Git vs Fossil doc, tightened up the discussion a bit, and added hard SLOC stats to ground it all. Most controversially, added the rattle wrench analogy. check-in: 69e7827d user: wyoung tags: trunk
05:03
Grammar fix to previous check-in: 7cfe191b user: wyoung tags: bsd-vs-gpl

Assorted improvements to www/fossil-v-git.wiki: added hyperlinks, fixed some spelling, capitalization, and grammar problems, clarified "Linux" vs "Linux kernel", clarified the description of the git-worktree feature, moved punctuation inside double quotes (typography), and added a few detail paragraphs. check-in: fd990128 user: wyoung tags: trunk
