"Oh the irony using github, a proprietary platform for your FOSS shit"

Plot twist, it has been GPL all along!

@alatiera For big FOSS projects like Rails, how should they do for you
Make the switch to GitLab? Self-Host?

@sphyphes I do not encourage or condone any kind of license shaming fwiw. This is about a fun bug that nobody noticed that kinda makes the whole rails codebase and every app based on it GPL.

In general, use whatever tools work for you.

@alatiera @sphyphes on the whole I think I'd rather people used LGPL than MIT but maybe that doesn't work for some things - IANAL

Not massively bothered as long as people actually respect what gets used
