Hello all,

After a very long investigation resulting in a better understanding of
licensing issues, I think dual-licensing logback under EPL 1.0 and
LGPL 2.1 would help with the project's adoption.

Licensees can then choose either the terms of the EPL or the terms of
the LGPL when they use logback.  The EPL license will placate
organizations which refuse the restrictions imposed by the LGPL
whereas the LGPL license ensures continuity in licensing and also
keeps the door open for licensees already bound by the terms of


ps. If you intend to respond, please do so on logback-users at .
