Subject Re: DSL for Lanterna
Date Sun, 03 Apr 2016 07:24:00 GMT
Hi Jochen,

Thanks for taking a look. About that license stuff, I must admit that 
I'm quite ignorant about all that, which is why I haven't added a 
license file yet.

I realize this isn't a groovy-related topic, but what would be a good 
license if I want to be as permissive as possible? And what exactly does 
it mean when you say "rules it out for any Apache software"? Does it 
mean that programs that use Lanterna cannot be released under an ASL 
license? Or just that they cannot be released under the name of the 
Apache Software Foundation?
