IPF and Openness

So I take it that pak21 isn't the copyright holder of fuse, and thus he is bound by gpl, if he was, he could freely link to the lib under the mame license?

Re: IPF and Openness

if its not worth paying for it then its not worth charging for it. a commercial zx spectrum emulator would fit that catergory, IPF wouldnt cost it anything. if it were some massive deal with some huge biz then it would. but anyway.... my view so far, is that the MAME license is still the best fit fo...

Re: IPF and Openness

and now for this important message:

this isnt about IF we open it up, we are opening it up, this is about HOW.

WHEN is as soon as we get a workable solution. ideally, we want one today, or this week, the only delay is working it out and trying to suit everyone.

Re: IPF and Openness

i beleive i'm right in what i'm saying, please correct me where i'm wrong. That's pretty much it. Of course, if someone else writes a GPL- compatible IPF library, then it doesn't necessarily having to be under the GPL itself: it could be under a very liberal license like the MIT 2 clause license, w...

Re: IPF and Openness

(EDIT: post overlap, but i'll leave this as it is.) because he uses GPL, and we aren't currently intending to, so he feels he cant use the library, regardless of what we may or may not think otherwise. if we really want to pursue that as a matter of confirmed fact, maybe we should, but i think thats...

Re: IPF and Openness

this is venturing here, i'm much more interested in the possibilites of licensing, dual licnesing etc, and how we can apply it and use it to suit all involved. we may do better to discuss the IPF format itself, once we've opened it? EDIT: i'd also like to say that i dont beleive we are ruling out do...

Re: IPF and Openness

Caprice32 v3 is not released under GPL (caprice v4 was) and the source for v3 was obtained directly from the author some years ago with the intention of adding IPF support to it.

the version of caprice32 with IPF support is based entirely on v3.

Re: IPF and Openness

just wondering, we are all clear that the library does not take over your floppy drive emulation? it feeds YOUR floppy drive emulation with the data you request. EDIT: i'm hoping the sooner we get this open the sooner this type of confusion ends, and much love for the library will follow. you could ...

IPF and Openness

The reason we are harping on about the lib, is that documenting ipf is an epic job, releasing the lib source which is fully commented is a great weight off this effort, and we want it open anyway.
