I do agree to change.

#218 could be closed - I guess

Please reply with 👍 if you agree to relicense your work.

👍 I agree to the license change.


👍 I agree


My two commits: c9ac8f5 2db7307

I agree to the license change.


👍 I agree too. I almost forgot about my little 73f794c :s


(not a contributor, just a user)
Why the change? I approve of choosing not to use GPL.


BSD is my preferred license, but regardless of what you choose, you can relicense my contributions under it.


If Bootstrap is something influencing you to make the change, you should note that Bootstrap could be changing over to MIT: twbs/bootstrap#2054


👍 I'm not a contributor but I approve of this whole-heartedly. Congrats on becoming even more open! :D


👍 Agree to the license change, contributor to DH-AES. Consider my code's copyright permanently transferred to the members of the ZNC team.

@Un1matr1x it makes sense for new projects... And for this we'll need to gather all those votes again...

znc member

Also, hopefully, license won't need be changed anymore :P
