I don’t know about this one, but it seems that Black Duck software CEO Doug Levin believes that GPLv2-v3 compatibility will happen [link fixed], despite Richard M. Stallman’s ongoing statements concerning the incompatibility of the two license versions.
He saved the best bit for last. That is, the pending incompatibility of Versions 2 and 3 of the GPL, as revealed in the “last call” license draft distributed at the end of May.
Levin thinks it will be fixed. “It was assumed the compatibility issue would be dealt with last.” Levin is flying back home Friday to check on that prediction, and go to the Red Sox game. World travelers have their priorities.
And we all thought that the Apache compatibility was the final improvement. This, if true, just goes to show all observers that there very well may be some additional changes after the last call draft of May 31.
