[Freeswitch-dev] Freeswitch now has Python Support - Ruby better

These licensing incompatibilities seem to be a big obstacle, because open
source project selection is not based on quality, but on license type.


For some, MPL is important, but for the most of us, I guess, MPL or GPL
makes no difference.


I had the same idea as Wasim's to start a new subproject FreeSwitch Modules
(Addons, Extras, etc), which could be GPL. The core and as much modules as
possible will still be MPL. It feels wrong that there's some good open
source stuff out there (for example, FreeRadius), which we can't integrate
with, just because of the licensing!

perhaps we should have something like freeswitch-addons for items that are
(pending) license or other issues ?

Well the interpreter is built and fully functioning w/ error checking. 
I am just waiting back for the license
ok before including it in trunk.  I would merge it now but I dont want
to have licensing woe's
come back on myself or the Freeswitch project.  Once I get a definitive
answer that we are good to
go I will be posting its in the trunk.


PS.  I wrote a good bit of the PHPAGI stuff for asterisk  :)
