Hi Pedro,

 

 

On site of DHX, the author of gantt library, you find :

 

·  Standard Edition - is distributed under GNU GPL v2, which means you can download and use it in a GPL-licensed project for free. To use the Standard Edition in a non-GPL/proprietary project, you need to buy a Commercial or Enterprise license.

 

Strictly speaking GPL v2 is not compatible with GPL v3 ( Odoo ), but it’s clear from the text on their site, DHX as author has no problem when you use it in any GPL licensed product ( Odoo v8, AGPL // Odoo v9 community, LGPL ). They mean ‘GPL v2 or a later version’, otherwise they would speak of a ‘with GPL v2 compatible GPL-licensed project’. Only Enterprise version is not compatible. Odoo changed to the Pro version, so it can be used in Enterprise version and removed the standard version. But there is no problem with bringing it back to community IMO.

 

Kind regards,

 

 

Van Hirtum Johan

I think the module is compatible with LGPL. But as the Gantt JS module 

is licenced under GPLv2*, it is not compatible with proprietary (so 

enterprise) code that relies on.
