Really, @purism? You copy a bunch of open-source apps and make it look like they are yours without any mention of the original apps? I think you should delete these apps immediately and publicly apologize. Or at least don't have the audacity to call yourself a "Social Purpose Corporation that does not exploit people and puts doing social good over maximizing profit ", because its obviously not true.

Don't get me wrong, its fine to fork #Tusky (and others), but please adhere to GPL 3, which says "The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified it, and giving a relevant date."

@ConnyDuck Did they get in touch with you or something alike ?

ist das wie wenn ich @nipos ohne was zu safen forken WÜRDE

nur damit ich das verstehe was die da schreiben

@mondstern @dada @ConnyDuck Du musst mir nicht sagen,wenn du das forkst.Du musst einfach nur den Quellcode deines Forks unter der AGPL3 Lizenz zur Verfuegung stellen.Dann ist die Lizenz erfuellt.

@maximilia @nipos @ConnyDuck @mondstern @dada Das ist rein rechtlich korrekt,aber Klagen sind fuer einen open source Entwickler ohne richtige Einnahmen zu teuer und ausserdem ist es eine Arschlochaktion,mit der man auch die eigene Community veraergern kann.Deshalb hat GPL Missachtung meistens keine Folgen.Fuer Purisms Image waere es aber natuerlich schlecht,wenn raus kommt,dass die die Lizenz gebrochen haben.
