Re: ODOO 8 and ODOO 9 Themes - Licenses!by
@Andreas,You are relatively new to this community and you check our history. This is public knowledge and have been advertised properly through this list and I know for a fact that Odoo has actively sought for all contributors ("best effort").Odoo has published the list of core contributors and holds a Contributor License Agreement for most of them ("99%") which grants them the authority to perform the change.You can find the CLA of the contributors directly in github: https://github.com/odoo/odoo/tree/9.0/doc/claAFAIK (and I am not here to speak on behalf of Odoo), they had a reasonable number of CLA to perform the change (and again this is public knowledge you can Google).I personally do not have any doubt about the switch but if you have reasonable ones, please gather testimony and I would suggest to contact directly Odoo sa to confront them before you get a lawyer...
- For software on a proxy server, you can provide an offer of source through a normal method of delivering messages to users of that kind of proxy. For example, a Web proxy could use a landing page. When users initially start using the proxy, you can direct them to a page with the offer of source along with any other information you choose to provide.
The AGPL says you must make the offer to "all users". If you know that a certain user has already been shown the offer, for the current version of the software, you don't have to repeat it to that user again.
Also here it gets quite clear how the code has to be delivered to the users. I was actually wrong and thought that you could deliver it also as printed version. Sorry!
you will find also more marks where they talk about how the source-code gets delivered and it seems that it has to be like described above.On Sat, Dec 19, 2015 at 5:59 PM, Andreas Becker <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:On Sat, Dec 19, 2015 at 3:17 PM, Caudal Eric <email@example.com> wrote:You cite several texts without sources like people thinking the Holy scriptures ARE gods words... when they are only an interpretation from witnesses.Here is the license: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/agpl.htmlNowhere it says that you have to serve the code in the server you use or anything alike. Here is what it says:> The GNU Affero General Public License is designed specifically toensure that, in such cases, the modified source code becomes availableto the community. It requires the operator of a network server toprovide the source code of the modified version running there to theusers of that server. Therefore, public use of a modified version, ona publicly accessible server, gives the public access to the sourcecode of the modified version.That's all: the rest is mere interpretation that wont hold in court.
Unfortunately you are wrong in the last point:I wanted to see if people really understand the licenses they are using and as you see they are not. It is not at all a mere interpretation of witnesses as those are examples given by those who have actually written the AGPL v.3here you can find the full text where the examples are.Therefore, public use of a modified version, on
a publicly accessible server, gives the public access to the source
code of the modified version.--
