    Subjectmodule-licences / tainting the kernel
    Date
    Hi all,

    from my point of view, the 'tainting-rule' for kernel-modules is too
    restrictive, allowing GPL-only modules to not be marked as tainting the
    kernel.

    Would it be possible to let e.g. LPGL-licenced kernel-modules be loaded
    legally?

    I do not at all want to hide my source code in any way, but under some
    circumstances, the pure GPL is too restrictive, and would reduce interest in
    open-source projects significantly.

    Opinions?

    Regards,
    Axel
