The below listed packages are some of the widely used GNU/Linux Free
Softwares hosted in gnu.org.
Package License URL
bash gplv2 http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/
diffutils gplv2 http://www.gnu.org/software/diffutils/
gdbm gplv2 http://www.gnu.org/software/gdbm/
libtool gplv2 http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/
ncurses MIT http://www.gnu.org/software/ncurses/
time gplv2 ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/time/
bc gplv2 http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bc/
dejagnu gplv2 http://www.gnu.org/software/dejagnu/
gperf gplv2 http://www.gnu.org/software/gperf/
make gplv2 http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/make/
The common nature of these packages are:
a) Free Softwares hosted in gnu.org
b) All are non GPLv3
While we are fighting to make GNU/Linux kernel and other softwares to
be under GPLv3, why we are forgetting these packages as these packages
are hosted in gnu.org itself ?
I think , it will be better for use to use a page in any of the open
wikis to track these programs (the above given list is not complete)
and complete the conversion to GPLv3 on a priority basis for these
Hmm.. I don't think we can do something to a package like ncurses
which is distributed under MIT License.
Thanks and Regards,
