This is an extension for image manipulation.

Right now, only image resize.

I made a mistake in the License. It's GNU not GPL.

I'm not sure. if it 's copyleft or not. Any body can tell me about this?

Thanks

GNU is the project, GPL is the license. The GPL is not compatible with Yii's license, which is new BSD. In other words, GPL forces you to distribute the source code of the program you use GPLed code into. So, if you make a facebook killer and sell it someone, you must give the code or make a statement offering the code. With the BSD license you can use the code in a propietary application and distribute it without giving your code if you don't want to, just keep the copyright notices. That's why Qiang asks to upload just BSD or compatible licensed extensions (MIT, new BSD, some versions of Creative Commons and even LGPL), but avoids GPL. You could also release it under a dual license (BSD and GPL, for instance)

I forgot it: if you use GPL code in your own code, your code inherits the license, so you can't make it BSD or something else... it's still GPLed.

Oh... I'm not a lawyer, BTW, but that's what it's commonly known from the licenses interpretations :)

OK, so, GNU = GPL

I will make other ImageManipulator class and change the license

Thanks for the explanation

Oh, no, the other way: GNU != GPL. Hmm this page is interesting, and explains the licenses clearly:

OK, I've removed the extension from the extension repository and add a link to this extension that sounds really good:

Thanks meta for your little words of inspiration about licenses!

there is a slight issue with that extension, i'll have time to post specifics and the source with the solution tonight. i don't think it really affects everyone, but it messes with my implementation.
