With Kokua being the main focus *soon* for a number of loved features
the question is: can we integrate it in Kokua?
Repeating it, so that my mail gets a bit longer, because anybody knows:
That is most often a licensing question, because Kokua inherited the
LGPL-v2.1-only from upstream, which unfortunately makes it impossivle
to just pick patches released under GPL 2 + FLOSS - the copyright
holder has to release it under LGPL that we can take it.
One of those I'd love to integrate into Kokua of course is LightShare
support. Can you think of a way to make it available under LGPL v2.1?
Like apply the patch to Kokua or any LGPL 2.1 viewer and push the
repository, or a patch with saying its also LGPL v2.1, or something
else that works for you ... I'd take care of the few bits and pieces
to adjust to the viewer2 codebase, if any at all necessary.
That'd be awesome :)
