You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Which component(s) or source packages is the licensing change request about?
Which area is the component in (if you know)? See the openness progress reports
What is the current licensing of the component?
What licensing would you like it to be and why? Examples can be:
open source and openly developed (move to gitorious), open source (select a
license), non-free but redistributable, non-free, published in nokia-binaries,
document the functionality, etc.
I would like to see the header files required to talk to the shared
connectifity UI libraries libconnui, libconnui_cell and libconbtui and the
osso-connectivity-ui-conndlgs daemon made available under a license that allows
linking into our own programs.
Which project(s) would benefit from this licensing change request?
It would allow status bar widgets and other things dealing with connectivity to
be able to do things common to all connectivity UI items without the need to
reinvent the wheel or figure out how to talk to components lower down in the
(Also see http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=784443&postcount=32 )
Andre, are you indicating that this should be moved to a Meego request? Or that
Meego will likely have these components open (assuming Meego continues to exist
what with the recent developments)?
I didn't plan to indicate anything but to link to an insightful post by Quim
covering this topic. :)
Expanding this further it would be useful to see all the connectivity UI
widgets opened up to resolve these:
Total list of related packages is:
Other use cases for having this open include:
Being able to wire widgets/control panels/etc for custom ICD network plugins
(such as USB networking) into the existing infrastructure
Better signal strength display for WiFi connections
