I seem to have picked up quite a burden here. I must answer all your
questions and satisfy your demands for proof with "totally conclusive"
evidence? Why? I think the sources of information I have already
linked to would answer all your questions. You tone makes me think
you are trying to trip me up and gather information to support making
my code be forcibly licensed as MIT, which I don't want.
But as they say, hope for the best ...
I can not prove to you what my intent was while I was working to
improve the Swazoo HTTP server, but I refer you to the version control
history and the mailing lists so you can draw your own conclusions. I
assert that I started work on Swazoo because it was licensed under the
LGPL and contributed work under that license in good faith. I think
my track record backs me up here.
Re SourceForge, I don't have the complete list of licenses that could
be selected for projects on SourceForge back in 2000, but I'm sure you
can see some (most, all?) of the choices via the wayback machine if
you care to look. FWIW I'm sure they had a policy of including the
OSI approved licenses even then and I recall setting up a project and
seeing quite a few licences to choose from (of cource, I chose the
LGPL for my library project).
All the best,
Make the most of your skills - with OpenSkills
