    Questions about the relicensing under MIT license

    Hi,

    I welcome the recent license change to the MIT License.

    However, our lawyer is not yet convinced that the license change is legally "clean".

    Could you confirm that:

    1. No legacy code originating from the Java GNU ClassPath project remains
      • I could not find any clear statement or indication that all that code has been replaced in the meantime...
      • Alternatively, the original copyright olders (FSF or contributors) could confirm to the relicensing...
    2. All contributors have agreed to relicense under MIT
      • This seems to be very likely according to the discussions at https://github.com/icsharpcode/SharpZipLib/issues/103 and https://github.com/icsharpcode/SharpZipLib/pull/101

    Btw, the homepage http://icsharpcode.github.io/SharpZipLib/ still carries the old license, can anyone upate it?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi, Mariia,

    I did not get any answers on this yet, unfortunately.

    Regards,

    Markus
