Nav Buoy Replacement in Core

Post by Cmd. Cheyd » Wed Dec 04, 2019 5:10 pm

Okay, so what do I need to do to allow this to happen? Change the license universally? Provide a specific license to Oolite core dev?

Let's make this a thing. :)

I definitely want to see this happen! Let's do it!

From my reply in another thread:
I think the only thing, licence-wise, is for the buoy to be released under a standard Commons Creative Attribution-Non Commercial-Share Alike License version 3.0, which is what the rest of the models and textures are released under. At the moment (at least from the version I have), the licence in use is Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States license (Modified).
But as I mentioned in that thread, I no expert on licencing, so if someone else wants to chime in and correct my understanding, please do it.

How do I do that? Is just changing the license statement/declaration in the script good enough?

This is the part where I make a suggestion, while looking at the back-stage area for someone more knowledgeable to come forward and offer a more definitive reply.

It would certainly be good enough from my perspective.

I am by no means knowledgeable enough on the subject of licensing, but if the OXP scripts are to be uploaded with changes in the copyright string to make them CC BY-NC-SA 3.0, maybe it would be best if Cmd. Cheyd uploaded the entire OXP with the license change also in its readme file. That would leave no margin for doubts, I believe.
