14:19 aubreyja Hi
14:19 mgage hi
14:20 aubreyja I got a similar message from fsf (I also pointed them to webwork).
14:20 aubreyja They also sent a note back to TOS objecting to their use of 'open source'...
14:20 mgage they do seem to be _very_ concerned about language.  I saw the TOS note.
14:22 mgage my use of commercial for WebAssign exactly fits their definition (developed as a business activity) http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html#Commercial  for what it is worth.
14:23 mgage I don't know if moving to gnu 3 would be better than gnu 2 (gavin seemed to think that gnu 3 was more restrictive )
14:23 mgage wonder what moodle uses?
14:24 mgage looks like they use gpl 3
14:29 aubreyja my impression from a quick googling (just now) is that gpl 3 is more restrictive from the point of view of people who might want to use the code for commercial purposes…
14:30 aubreyja I think they were trying to push back against what they considered violations of what they think of as the spirit of gpl 2 but which may not have been violations of the letter of gpl2.
14:31 mgage that's what gavin said as well -- I guess I don't want to rush in changing, but if moodle has changed over to version 3 then it's probably ok for us to do it.   Let's have Michael think about this as well before we make any changes
14:41 mgage when's a good time to talk about people and tasks> -- I'll be free until about 2pm est -- was just starting in on some class prep, but we could talk now and I could do that later,  or vice versa -- which ever fits your schedule.  I was thinking that facetime might in order for this discussion.
14:44 aubreyja I'm free for about another hour and then again after lunch - FaceTime sounds good
14:45 mgage ok -- let
14:46 mgage let's talk now for a bit  -- here's a document we can type into -- if it doesn't work we can move it to a google doc
14:47 aubreyja sure - gimme a sec to get some water - brb
14:47 mgage ok
14:48 aubreyja ok, back - where's the doc?
14:49 mgage https://workflowy.com/shared/0dfb0b05-a5a7-8cae-0896-617634954ef9/
14:50 mgage I've dialed your ipad on facetime
14:50 aubreyja getting my iPad!
14:50 mgage call when you get it
