## Good License Choice
 

	
 
<a id="license-approved"></a>
 
Obviously, code that's not under a license that is both
 
[OSI approved](http://opensource.org/licenses/alphabetical) and is not
 
[approved by FSF as a Free Software license](http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#SoftwareLicenses)
 
is completely useless to us.
 

	
 
<a id="gpl-compatible"></a>
 
It would also be quite preferable if the code were under a
 
[a license that FSF has determined is GPL-compatible](http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html#GPLCompatibleLicenses),
 
so that code from GPL'd projects can be easily shared and GPL'd applications
 
can be built on top of anything we build.  Code not under a GPL-compatible
 
license would face a high burden (i.e., the code would really have to be
 
absolutely wonderful in all other respects) to dictate such a license choice.
