We require a written note that allows us to use the contributions
under MIT. Since this is rather new we need to figure out the exact
details still, but there is a form you need to print out and sign and
send in. I think Craig might know best.
MIT was chosen because it is compatible to basically everything.
Squeak 1.1 was relicensed by Apple under the Apache License 2.0 just
last year. With this Apache base and all the MIT contributions we
have a completely free system. And if there was a replacement for the
Squeak kernel down the road (Spoon, Pepsi, whatever) the MIT parts
can be moved over with ease. Also, the major new systems built on
Squeak (like Croquet, Tweak, Seaside, etc.) are MIT licensed.
