In a thread in the emacs-devel maillist, the licensing situation for emacs packages provided through Emacs package archives has been under focus. I have volunteered to contact the authors of packages that have a license that is incompatible with Emacs, which is now under GPL-3+.
So I wonder if you could consider to change the license of your package to GPL-3+?
@brandelune thank you for letting me know though. I know you are helping rms. I can't agree with him after all these years. (i was rms fanatic back from 1999 to about 2006, and pro FSF/GNU/GPL and anti Open Source, if you knew there was a faction and still)
on the other hand, apparently melpa went alone to enforced this gpl3 idea. I got notification from their issue alert. I guess i can still change the license and be part of the boat... but am tired. Maybe later.
@brandelune You touched me.
If you would change the line
