OSDN Says Slashcode Plugins Should Not Be Required to be GPLed

Dave Aiello wrote, "In a decision that we consider critical to the future success of Slashcode as a content management system, OSDN has announced that it will not require code written to the Slashcode Plugin Interface Specification to be licensed under the Gnu Public License. The announcement was made by Brian Aker (aka Krow) on the Slashcode Web Site."

"CTDATA is more likely to publish Slashcode Plugins than it otherwise would be as a result of the pragmatic approach taken by OSDN."
