Description Dan McNichol 2007-01-04 13:15:09 UTC
The following file seems to be infected with the GPL v2 license:

Is it possible to get the author(s) to relicense it under the MIT license?
Comment 1 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2007-01-04 15:12:06 UTC
Erdal, could we please relicence ir(ku_ara) under mit/x11 license?
Comment 2 Erdal Ronahi 2007-01-04 15:24:35 UTC
Yes, we can do that as an additional second license. I'd be pleased though to
get some feedback whether this keyboard is fine for everybody using it.
Comment 3 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2007-01-04 15:38:24 UTC
Erdal, thanks for the fast reply. I will add some comments to the symbols/ir
file, stating that you explicitly allow to use it under X11 licence (and
mentioning the URL of this bug).

Well, I am not sure I could really help you with the feedback thouh. But you may
be sure - if I get bug reports regarding your layout(s), I'll try to CC you -
the same as I do with other contributors...
Comment 4 Erdal Ronahi 2007-01-04 15:47:23 UTC
By the way, could you have a look at the table? I have the suspicion that there
is something wrong here and in tr(kurdish). My GNOME panel gets damned unstable
whenever I use one of them.

Maybe I got some level definitions wrong? I did not pay much attention to this.
Comment 5 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2007-01-04 15:57:24 UTC
Erdal, I am not sure I coul be a good tester. I just ensure the layout can be
used (setxkbmap does not fail on setting it) - and that's it. Right now, I typed
several characters - everything seems to be smooth enough..
Comment 6 Erdal Ronahi 2007-01-04 16:03:57 UTC
Yes, the keyboard works. But GNOME-Panel frequently crashes. I said maybe there
is some issue with the levels that I didn't grasp. Also see

I fear it may be related to the Kurdish keyboard layouts I wrote. 
Comment 7 Sergey V. Udaltsov 2007-01-04 16:16:07 UTC
At some point (in 2.16) the applet had variant-related bug (worked ok with
default layouts, crashed on variants). Now it should be ok... Anyway - I do not
think it is the problem of your variant, it is rather
libxklavier/gnome-keyboard-indicator problem
