Hi ALL

Today is the announcement of FGMEMBERS-NONGPL

https://github.com/FGMEMBERS-NONGPL


This area/organization includes Flightgear Aircraft licensed in ways different to GPL, but such that allows

1) Copying , and
2) Redistribution

since the license covering those aircraft include these 2 clauses above, you are welcome to either download, and redistribute the code. This includes, naturally using github forking to create a repository of your own as well if so desired.


****

Most of these repositories are under license clauses that Allow modification, provided that copyleft is maintained. This means, that you can make modification, and share those modifications, but you can't release on a license different to that one you obtained. Example, if you modify a Creative Commons covered aircraft, then you can redistribute those changes, if you agree not changing the license indicated by previous copyright owners/ creators/ etc.

This means, that, if you make changes, but also agree with keeping the license indicated, you can create pull requests, to share those modifications with us

(alternatively, consider joinining FGMEMBERS-NONGPL organization to be able to commit directly yourself!)

******

All of the FGMEMBERS-NONGPL Aircraft forbid commercialization. You are not allowed to legally sell/purchase these. Or use them in any commercial endeavor!

*******

A few Of those licenses forbid distribution of modification. These are know as NON_DERIVATIVE "ND" clause. In these cases, FGMEMBERs will not accept pull requests, and encourage you not to attempt distributing modified versions.

****

FGMEMBERS-NONGPL clarifies the license on a LICENSE or COPYING file in every aircraft root directory. Also in the description on the main page (in brackets).

Since most of these aircraft are Creative commons: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/ keep in mind

1. "BY" means Attribution. All creative commons includes this. It implies you have to acknowledge all previous copyright owners. You have to acknowledge the authors of the sources. Keeping clear commit logs is encouraged. AUTHORS.txt files is encouraged.

2. "NC" means: No commercial allowed

3. "SA" means: Share alike. Indicating that you can't release derivative work on different license than the one you are receiving the material

4. "ND" means: No derivative. You are not legally allowed to distribute modified versions of this work. FGMEMBERS will not accept pull request. These repos will say [==DO NOT MODIFY==] in the description and no FGMEMBERS have writte access to the repository!

Enjoy Flying

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Well, you never know :) But seriously, I'm leaning towards the DC-6, as the Basler is kind of stuck.
