Aqsis Licensing Changes to BSD

Aqsis Licensing Changes

As of 25th July 2010, the Aqsis project intends to move towards re-licensing under the BSD license ( All new code contributed by any authorised developer must, by agreement of the developer, be licensed under the BSD license. Existing code will remain under the current GPL/LGPL combination in the short term, while efforts are made to obtain agreement to re-license under the BSD license. Where agreement is not forthcoming, the code in question will be removed from the project, and be replaced with new implementation, written in isolation and licensed under the BSD license. The intention is to ultimately provide the whole of Aqsis under the BSD license.
