GPL Project Watch List for Week of 12/14


 

The GPL v3 Watch List is intended to give you a snapshot of the GPLv3/LGPLv3 adoption for November 30th through December 14th, 2007.

December National Bouillabaisse Day

As of December 14th, 5pm PST, our GPL v3 database contains 1342 GPL v3 projects, a 66 project increase since last week. The LGPL v3 list has also had an increase from last weeks number of 122 LGPL v3 projects to 125 LGPL v3 projects. Lastly, the GPL v2 or later count is currently at 6379 GPL v2 or later projects, as compared to last weeks number of 6356 GPL v2 or later projects.

 


New project conversions this week include:

  • Sushee: an XML Office Management Framework: a set of application development tools designed to manage contents and activities (companies, institutions, associations, etc.) in a multi-language, multi-channel, multi-format and multi-project context.
  • Awakener: an extensible suite of programs solving real world optimization problems using genetic algorithms and showing the possibilities and features of the Sleepwalker library.
  • Squidit: an administration-tool for the Squid proxyserver. It configures automatically the .conf files of Squid: you can add, remove and update the information in badDomain.conf and badDomainIP.conf by using just one command.
