GPL Project Watch List for Week of 11/23


The GPL v3 Watch List is intended to give you a snapshot of the GPLv3/LGPLv3 adoption for November 17th through November 23rd, 2007. 

November – Happy Thanksgiving
As of November 23rd, our database contained
1172 GPL v3 Projects, which is an increase of 21 new GPL v3 Projects since last weeks figure of 1151 GPL v3 projects. This is much lower than the weekly average of approximately 50 new projects, but we suspect it might just be from all the tryptophan from those Thanksgiving turkeys. Our LGPL v3 count is still at 95 LGPL v3 projects and our GPL v2 or later list has grown to 6119 GPL v2 or later projects.


New project conversions this week include:

 

  • PKSV: (Pokemon Script Viewer) is a small program used to decompile, edit and compile scripts in Pokemon Advance ROMs.
  • TOCD tools: Content management and build tools for TheOpenCD and other OpenSource/OpenContent collections on CD/DVD.
  • SGENG: Nearly fully AJAXed and XMLed CMS. Fast and easy site creation with later content, news, users management. Accounting, commenting, tabs, simple BB-codes, news and searching systems.


In the News

Notable Mention
Palamida actively takes submissions from visitors on updates on new GPL v3/LGPL 3 projects. We are amazed at the number of submissions we have gotten to date, but even more so, we are incredibly grateful to the almost 100 core contributors who have devoted their time and resources at helping us provide up-to-date information.

 

Happy Holidays!
