[postgis] License, cookies,

Jonathan Byron
Just heard about PostGIS and am interested.  I couldn't find any information
on the web site about the license that PostGIS is released under - public
domain, GPL, LGPL, or other.

Also, I went to the Yahoogroups to browse the older posts, but it would not
let me in. I am using the Konqueror web browser and Yahoo insisted on setting
a cookie, something that ordinary prompts me so I can decide. After the first
failure, I changed the browser settings to accept all cookies, but it still
wouldn't set the cookie or let me in.  Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks,  Jonathan

We decided to go GPL, for better or worse. Our hope is that if PostGIS
and PostGIS related tools become popular we can build our business on
services (we are primarily a GIS services company at this point anyways,
so it would not be a stretch). In the meantime, we are working on
PostGIS in the cracks between our paying projects.

Hm, this is news to me. I have this list being sent to a storage box for
archival purposes: I will move web-based access to that archive higher
up my priority list.
