Re: How do you think about "Forbidden license" paragraph?

@KGM: None of the CC licenses should be used for software. It's discouraged by CC (the organization) and pretty much any other organization). It's might not be the end of the world, nor is it neccessarily unethical, the discouragement is more for practical reasons; these licenses were simply not des...

Re: New license policy: Treat free and non-free differently

Because the distinction of free vs non-free is more important and easier to understand than the concrete license? If you want to have a license filter, fine, it just adds another layer of complexity, however. Non-free is easy to define: Any license which is not free by the definition of the Free Sof...

Re: Proposal: Content DB should only accept FOSS

Thanks for clarifying that. I always thought that redistribution was always kind of implied by ruling out no derivates, but it's good to clarify. Seems like we are finally getting somewhere! :-) The use of licenses which discriminate between groups of people or forbid the use of the content on serve...

Re: How do you think about "Forbidden license" paragraph?

So, you are basically claiming that the attribution clause in licenses such as CC BY is not actually enforcable and thus pointless. This claim is false. http://vondranlegal.com/is-violation-of-creative-commons-license-a-breach-of-contract-or-copyright-infringement/ (scroll down to “Philpot v. Music ...

Re: [5.0.0] Formspec Theming using Prepended Strings

Awesome! This was much needed.
This will make formspec theming a piece of cake and hopefully the number of ugly default-themed formspecs will go down drastically.

Re: I can not connect to some IRC channels...

#minetest-mod-dev is unofficial and desolate. The “desolate” part might change in future. I have still not given up hope. :-) The official channel for modding is #minetest That's only half true. #minetest is a general talk channel for all things Minetest, including modding.

Re: I can not connect to some IRC channels...

@rubenwardy: Every single member of #minetest-hub must have been manually approved by the leaders first. Without this approval, you're out of luck. So you just proved my point.

@all: Join #minetest-mod-dev for unrestricted and uncensored Minetest modding talk. :-)

Re: I can not connect to some IRC channels...

And also i can not send messages on #minetest-hub

#minetest-hub is an elitist channel that only grants a few select people the right to talk. You don't have that right.

Re: Remove LuaJIT support?

I also have the impression that the memory limit forced by LuaJIT is frustratingly small, much smaller than the system could offer. For complex games the only way to “fix” this is to dump lots of files. This can't be the solution. The memory limit forced by LuaJIT is just completely arbitrary. I thi...

Re: Remove LuaJIT support?

Don't you think that LuaJIT is a problem when Minetest keeps crashing for large portion of players? It's a bad idea to keep something like this enabled by default . Don't expect players to fix all the problems in Minetest themselves. Most players are not coders. Many players don't even know what Lua...

Re: New license policy: Treat free and non-free differently

These suggestions should be uncontroversial:

- Allow users to filter out non-free in Content DB
- Add distinction between free/non-free (license) in Minetest (because currently there is no distinction at all!)

My summary

Since I wrote many walls of text so far, I should summarize my overall position: 1) Forum policy could stay the same. 2) BUT! In order to get your stuff to the new Content DB, it must be 100% FOSS. Basically, the forum grants everyone “base exposure”, but is less strict. Content DB is a bonus. To ge...

Re: New license policy: Treat free and non-free differently

MT has allowed certain licenses on principle long term, this is highly unlikely to change as you've probably found out. As long as certain licenses are allowed we can't be too militant about suppressing certain content, because if we were that concerned about such content it wouldn't be allowed in ...

Re: [Game] MineClone 2 [0.41.3]

on file /mods/ENTITIES/mobs_mc/creeper.lua This is suboptimal and should not be done normally. Any source code changes will be lost on the next update, obviously.

Re: How do you think about "Forbidden license" paragraph?

What's the point of being allowed to make derivates if you are not allowed to publish them?
