There are two questions:
0) do the statements on the web site correspond to the licence for that
1) is the licence DFSG-free?
2) can it be altered to be made so?
3) how does the logo requirement relate to library applications?
Do you have any thoughts on how long it might take to get these
questions answered and sorted out, and are you willing/able to take
the lead on that? (I am happy to do the prodding Andy part, to get
the Template package updated - I will email him the moment someone
agrees to take charge of the other issue.)
I've sent an email to the Ordnance Survey about the licensing; you
can see it at
Some of us were hoping to talk about the Oxford Guide
next-but-one Oxford Geek Night (in July), but if the guide can't be
upgraded before then, there's not much point in us going and telling
people about all of OpenGuides' new shiny features...
I think I asked in a previous email whether it would be possible for
the Debian packages to also look for separately-installed CPAN modules,
i.e. to have the OSGB module installed in a user directory, and have
the Oxford Guide CGIs include that directory in their 'use lib' - was
that question overlooked, or is it impossible? (I don't know enough
about how Debian works to tell whether this is a ridiculous question.)
Sort of. It couldn't be a publicly released Debian package in that way,
because it then wouldn't be possible to run it in the expected way
just be installing it with Debian packaging tools, but it could be an
interim stage. More likely I will build the package and install it
locally on urchin.
