19:52 potasmic Hi! I am considering licensing my open source application under MIT. however, I found that Rosetta is under GPL. What should I do?

22:29 ttmrichter potasmic: Your choices would appear to be:
22:29 ttmrichter 1. Relicense your code.
22:29 ttmrichter 2. Contact the initial author of the code and ask for an exemption.
22:29 ttmrichter 3. Use code from elsewhere with a compatible license.
22:30 ttmrichter 4. Use the code that's there to figure out how the algorithm works and write your own implementation.
22:30 potasmic But what if the algorithm is simple enough and cannot be implemented any other way (without having worse performance)?

22:31 fedaykin "Bitmap/Bresenham's line algorithm - Rosetta Code" https://rldn.net/C81
22:31 potasmic I don't know who wrote the code too
22:32 ttmrichter Those are your choices.  That's it.
22:32 potasmic Alright, thanks
