Cygwin library now available under GNU LGPL
Thu Jun 23 12:20:00 GMT 2016
I'm pleased to announce that the today's upcoming release of the Cygwin
library (version 2.5.2) introduces a license change. From 2.5.2
onwards, the Cygwin DLL is now available under the GNU LGPL v3, rather
than the former GPLv3.
The official Red Hat announcement:
This change not only allows us to drop the buyout license, it also
allows us to drop the requirement for contributor's to sign a copyright
I'll follow up later today with a description of the new procedure for
contributions (easy!, but now I have to look for releaseing 2.5.2 first.
