in thread OT: A Modest Proposal for a GNU infrastructure license RGPL

Right now, you cannot use GCC code without linking to it statically.

The GCC group has asked everyone not to dynamically link it.

You cannot use it under any other license at all.

So I am trying to license the output of it, to put in an XML gateway, and to protect that gateway from anyone else using it other than GPLed code, just like is provisioned under the GPL.

My point is that with the RGPL you can use shared libs and XML and all these funky tools, even GPLEd perl scripts, if you use the compiler via an RGPL interface.

Right now there is NO way to do any of that forseen by the gcc team,and the try an squash anyone who tries.

The introspector is a PATCH to the gcc, not a branch.

I would not distribute that patch, only the data output from it via an RGPL licence via a web service, only to GPLed projects.

Have I explained myself?

Mike
