The CI 3.0 license

#1
The CI 3.0 license has been debated to the point of exhaustion. At least in my case, I have worked for businesses that refuse to upgrade to 3.0 because of the license. Is there any hope that the license for 3.0 will be changed before it is officially released? Most other well known open source projects use MIT or BSD.

I'd be more excited about the future of CI if I knew I could use it.

I also know some users who could not use 3.0 because of the license. OSL is not familiar and hard to understand.

I hope popular permissive open source license like BSD/MIT.

In this post http://forum.codeigniter.com/thread-17.html James write about his vision on CI. Here he says

>>> ... the project into a "community-driven" one, ....

So i believe the license would no more a problem with CI ;o)

Personally I never saw this as an issue, if you are modifying open source files you should release your changes to the community. That's the only way the system works. That said I'm impressed by this decision, my concerns of a new owner have been squashed. The community thanks you!
