The GPL v3 Watch List is intended to give you a snapshot of the GPLv3/LGPLv3 adoption for November 24th through November 30th, 2007.

November Cities for Life Day, and Evel Knievel passed away today. (http://evelknievel.com)

November has come to an end and the holiday season is in motion. I guess we will get some data on how Thanksgiving and Christmas affect productivity. As of 4:00 pm PST, our database contains 1234 GPL v3 projects, an increase of 62 new GPL v3 projects since last week. The LGPL v3 number is stagnant at 95 LGPL v3 projects. Lastly, the GPLv2 or later count is now at 6286 GPLv2 or later projects, as compared to last weeks number of 6119 GPL v2 or later projects.

New project conversions this week include:
MarcoPolo
: MarcoPolo uses fuzzy logic and rule-based matching to make educated guesses as to your current location, and it automatically switches to the correct network location.
YaNuCa: Web-based nutrition calculator for adult intensive care patients
Sliding Puzzle 2x: Sliding Puzzle 2x es la recreación de un juego de puzzle clásico donde cada pieza es un fragmento de una imagen y hay que reconstruir una imagen desplazando piezas sin levantarlas del tablero.

Notable Mention
Palamida actively takes submissions from visitors on updates on new GPL v3/LGPL 3 projects.
