Summary: Funambol open source licensing update

Dear Funambol Community:

Funambol today announced that it was adopting the newly released AGPLv3 license for its open source software. This will become effective with the general availability (GA) release of Funambol v6.5, due within a few weeks. Funambol made this change as we believe that AGPLv3 is the appropriate successor license to the Honest Public License (HPL) that we introduced last year. As AGPLv3 is very similar to HPL but has some advantages for the community, such as being compatible with more open source licenses, we believe it is in the best interests of the community to adopt AGPLv3. For more information:

* View the press release: http://www.funambol.com/news/pressrelease_2007.11.27.php

* Read Funambol CEO Fabrizio Capobianco's blog entry on why we made this change: http://www.funambol.com/blog/capo/2007/11/agpl-and-future-of-open-source.html

* See the Free Software Foundation website: http://www.fsf.org/licensing/licenses/agpl-3.0.html

Regards,

Hal Steger
