does DUNDi not have the additional problem of not being open-license?
While I am not familiar with the intricacies of GPL vs. limited GPL vs.
[fill in license X], I will say that the DUNDi protocol was developed with
the intention of becoming an RFC, so I would hope that the intent was to
make the protocol a license-free effort, even though there is certainly
good precedent for that not being the case on other standards proposals
The Asterisk folks have not submited a draft as a proposed working group
item in ENUM where it would logically come.
And as the co-chair of the ENUM WG IMHO the WG would have no problem
looking at it.
While the Asterisk implementation of DUNDi may currently be under the
Asterisk/Digium modified/limited GPL, I don't know if the protocol itself
is under the same license scheme. I would suspect "No", but simple
questions like this tend to take up far too much time on various mailing
lists, so no assumption is safe. I typically delete those conversation
threads, as they typically contain hysteria, ignorance, or arrogance in
varying blends and quantities. I would suggest that everyone who has an
interest in such things to talk to a lawyer for firm determination
thereof, or move to a country where such questions are legally irrelevant.
