Unclear licensing for extension-ArticleIndex
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

rEAID extension-ArticleIndex licensing is unclear. In https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Extension:ArticleIndex&oldid=566037 its author tagged it as GPL. Maintenance on that page later changed it to GPL-2.0 but at the time the extension was first published GPL-3.0 was published already. @Legoktm and myself think it'd be good to have this clarified. See discussion at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/403950/

Event Timeline

@Kghbln Could you clarify the licensing change in this diff, or was that accidental?

I guess he did because if you just list GPL on Template:Extension it categorizes in "Extensions with unknown license".

If somebody convenes to just add GPL I assume GPL-2.0. Just typing GPL is actually a non-information and everybody may choose whatever fits best.

Kghbln assigned this task to MarcoAurelio.

Author chosen GPL-3.0.

Thanks a lot for dealing with this!

My pleasure. I'll tag the extension.json file shortly.
