Hi,

I have nothing to permit or to forbid regarding the sourceforge account of CMSimple_XH. I have just allowed Svasti, to give his ftp access data for cmsimple-xh.com to Christoph, so I have not to create an extra ftp user for Christoph.

And I have told Svasti, that I would have no problem, if he would delete my admin account on sourceforge.net,

Hello Gert,

I wanted to ask about the license section in cms.php. Can we remove it from CMSimple_XH? IMO it's very misleading, as a user easily could assume he can use CMSimple_XH under AGPL, Linkware or even with a commercial license (what is not allowed). Instead we can use the following as part of cms.php's DocBlock:

Code: Select all

 * @copyright	1999-2009 <http://cmsimple.org/>
 * @copyright	2009-2012 The CMSimple_XH developers <http://cmsimple-xh.com/?The_Team>
 * @license	http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.en.html GNU GPLv3 
About the license of CMSimple 3.4: it's not clear, under which licenses it is available. On http://www.cmsimple.org/archives/cmsimple_old/?Licence only GPL 3 is mentioned explicitely, but the wording ("also", "None of the licenses") implies, that it can be used under other licenses. cms.php contains the information, that it can be used under four different licenses.

I think, it's clear:

All is available under GPL3 only now.

Old licenses may be used furthermore (for old downloads).

You can remove all other licenses except GPL3.

A simply hint to CMSimple (+ url "www.cmsimple.org") is enough. I would not limit it to CMSimple 3.3, so you can use ideas and codes of CMSimple 4.0 in the future, like I will use ideas and codes from CMSimple_XH under GPL3 in the future ;)

Hi Gert,

thanks for the clarification. :)

Yes, of course. Both projects might mutually exchange and reuse ideas and code. :)
