I sent this proposal to f-m-l about a week ago to gather comments, and
there were no serious disagreements with the proposal which have not yet
been addressed (thanks to Tibbs and Toshio for their feedback).
Basically, I want to establish a set of guidelines for packaging Tcl
extensions, as we already have guidelines for other popular scripting
languages. In addition to making Tcl packages more consistent with each
other, it will also help work toward fixing my pet-peeve bug (bz #226893)
Please let me know if I need to do anything to help get these draft
I would like to understand a special case with respect to the CLA. It is
the case where the Fedora packager is also the copyright holder for the
package being contributed.
I am the original author and copyright holder for a package. That
package is currently distributed with the GPLv2 license. If I sign the
CLA and complete the package contribution, does this mean that the
original upstream source would no longer covered by the GPLv2 license,
but rather by the CLA ?
