OK, here is the situation. It turns out that
BVLS was previously released under GPL v.2 to the R project.
The authors are happy to have it available under that license.
However, they also appear willing to consider LGPL and
possibly BSD if that would be helpful. I would need to be
able to tell them how it would be helpful. Could someone
better versed in SciPy/licenses interactions help here?
This is what I think.
GPL code can be used in SciKits but not in SciPy proper.
If so, is it desirable/important that this code be available in SciPy proper?
Finally, one author added the following statement:
"I would be happy to license it under anything that
keeps attribution to Bob and me and that keeps the code
I do not really know what this means. The GPL itself makes
no commitment to keep the code "intact", right? Can
I address this concern in any way?
