GPL license essentially prohibits using the library as part of the proprietary closed-source software. However if ActiveWidgets ever achieves production-level quality and there is enough demand from commercial developers â it could be released under commercial license in parallel to GPL. As far as I know MySQL and few other companies use similar dual-license scheme.
Hopefully this would help the project to survive beyond the initial period of enthusiasm and excitement (at least on my side).
The real problem - does this scheme leave any incentive to participate for you, guys? I donât yet know what is the best approach here, so any suggestions or just experience of other projects is very much appreciated.
