Trac is being migrated to new services! Issues can be found in our new YouTrack instance and WIKI pages can be found on our website.


This is a list of anyone who we think may be violation the license of any part of our project, and the status of the violation. The license is pretty much always the GPL, but could potentially be something else.

Being listed here does not necessarily mean the software in question is a problem--just that someone thinks it should be investigated. Please do not send impolite emails to the creators of software listed here. If you're a copyright holder of code that is a part of our project, you may email someone and ask for clarification or point out violations and request that they be fixed. Please be civil.
