@mhsjlw
you can place warranty and have patent claims
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
i sorta want the compiler to be under the gpl
mhsjlw
@mhsjlw
fuck no
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
there are no downsides to it really, it isn't gonna be embedded in anything else really
mhsjlw
@mhsjlw
because then the produced code is
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
well, I wrote it though
no it isn't
that's not how it works
gcc is gpl, that doesn't mean everything compiled with it is
Robin Lambertz
@roblabla
Actually, GPL is fine for the most part
I just sorta worry about how it interacts with the native types
mhsjlw
@mhsjlw
yeah you wrote it , so you can do whatever you want , it just affects wether or not I feel like using it or contributing to it
Robin Lambertz
@roblabla
Here's the thing : we want backends/frontends to be open source
but we don't really care if native types are.
mhsjlw
@mhsjlw
if you can guarantee that it won't affect anything I write that's not protodefc
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
well, native types is analogous to linking
it shouldn't be a problem
Robin Lambertz
@roblabla
Linking against GPL is ambiguous by the license ^^'
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
that's different
the linking exception is for gpl code that links to non-gpl code
this case is more like the linker itself
William Gaylord
@wgaylord
or non-gpl code that links to gpl code.
^ not allowed.
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
sure
William Gaylord
@wgaylord
which forces people who want to write backend to be GPL.
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
yeah
mhsjlw
@mhsjlw
he wants that
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
that's exactly what I want to do
William Gaylord
@wgaylord
why?
mhsjlw
@mhsjlw
I'm not sure if I can get on board with this
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
because I want all backends to be open source
mhsjlw
@mhsjlw
hmm
I'll think about it
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
why not?
William Gaylord
@wgaylord
GPL is like the most limiting license out there...
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
do you have a reason why not?
William Gaylord
@wgaylord
like it strips the end user of there rights to do what they want with there code...
Robin Lambertz
@roblabla
Yes, but we want backends to be open source
Also, @chibill this is a compiler
it's not an interpreter
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
I would normally not use the GPL, but I feel like this is one of the very few situations where it really fits well
William Gaylord
@wgaylord
still....
Robin Lambertz
@roblabla
you may use the compiler output in your proprietary program
mhsjlw
@mhsjlw
no , 'still' is not how I feel
Robin Lambertz
@roblabla
You just can't change the compiler to do new stuff without open sourcing it
Hans Elias J.
@hansihe
the only thing using the gpl for this will do is prevent some company from nicking it and improving without contributing back
mhsjlw
@mhsjlw
Firstly I feel like the gpl is a fantasy
you can't enforce half this shit
I prefer encouraging
