EC code not in-house.

We need our own EC code before the B2 build. This requires:

1. Attempt to obtain permission from ENE for their parts. (MarkF?) 2. Obtain Quanta's parts. (MarkF?) 3. Reimplement #1 if necessary. (dwmw2, if nobody else) 4. Put it all together into our buildrom stuff (again, dwmw2)

Changed 8 years ago by jg

  • owner changed from mfoster to wad
  • milestone changed from CTest to BTest-3

So we have Quanta and the Gold Peaks' blessing.

I would suggest a concrete proposal of putting a GPL on the code be made to ENE, and that in return, we either transfer copyright on any modifications we make or MIT copyright what we do in the EC code; this would enable ENE to sell a commercial version still under a separate commercial license.

The solution is political, not technical.

RIchard is making due wiht less than perfect situation - this is unlikely to be resolved soon, but we are trying to rewrite with uncontaminated people as time and efforts allow.

we are getting close here to a compromise solution - getting the EC code but not open source, and then in parallel (when time allows) doing a complete rewrite of it from scratch to allow a GPL version. - Mary Lou

Moving this to Opportunity as it is not gating any release.
