FFI license

Hi list,

We’re evaluating license compatibility of JRuby and ran across the FFI
code

lib/ruby/site_ruby/shared/ffi/ffi.rb
“… a recipient may use your version of this file under the terms of
any one of the CPL, the GPL or the LGPL.”

awesome. we like CPL.

then, in
lib/ruby/site_ruby/shared/ffi/ffi.rb
“you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU
Lesser General Public License version 3”

LGPLv3 only :frowning:

And it seems the original project https://github.com/ffi/ffi states
LGPLv3 only for the entire project.

We would ideally like to not use any GPL/LGPL code. Advice?

Cheers,
Mike

Mike,

I think this is important enough an issue we should have a JIRA ticket.
Do you mind opening one in http://bugs.jruby.org?

Thank you.
