- Subject: Question about code licensing
There is renewed interest in getting a D compiler into the GCC sources.
The most direct route for this to happen is to use the existing Digital
Mars DMD front end.
The current DMD front end code is GPL licensed, and copyright is owned
by Digital Mars. If they were to fork the source, and contribute that
fork under the current license of GCC, do they still possess the freedom
to continue to do what they wish with the original code?
