This Week in Data With Colin Charles 51: Debates Emerging on the Relicensing of OSS

Colin CharlesJoin Percona Chief Evangelist Colin Charles as he covers happenings, gives pointers and provides musings on the open source database community.

There has been a lot of talk around licenses in open source software, and it has hit the database world in the past weeks. Redis Labs relicensed some AGPL software to the Commons Clause (in their case, Apache + Commons Clause; so you can’t really call it Apache any longer). I’ll have more to say on this topic soon, but in the meantime you might enjoy reading Open-source licensing war: Commons Clause. This was the most balanced article I read about this move and the kerfuffle it has caused. We also saw this with Lerna (not database related), and here’s another good read: Open Source Devs Reverse Decision to Block ICE Contractors From Using Software.

Reviewing is under way for Percona Live Europe 2018 talks: the review of the tutorials is complete. We can expect to see a schedule by mid-September, so hang in there—I’ve received a lot of messages asking if talks are going to be approved or not.
