Why would you make this a GPL project?

I can foresee many issues:

  1. Difficult to ship in varnish
  2. Even as a VMOD, the modules live in (and link to) varnishd
  3. Make it difficult to merge the Varnish FW, VMOD parsereq and this project because of the license
  4. You might make live harder for your users. An example of FreeBSD license assumption (see the feature list): http://www.unixy.net/varnish/

You should consider re-licensing it all to FreeBSD, or at least dual-licensing the project.

Kristian was down with it, so I guess we can change the license then. I'll make the change.

Sent patch on ticket #16 so closing this ticket as change has been "approved" by all authors.
