    • Property Summary changed from Licence name is misleading to License name is misleading
  • Ticket #2649 – Description

    initial v3  
    1 The "MIT" licence does not actually exist.
    2 It's a nickname to the X11 licence, which is close to the revised BSD one. But the MIT has used many licences over time. Even though it's a known fact and might legally work, naming which we mean is much better.

    33We should choose either X11 or BSD-revised, and use the correct name everywhere.
