    Default Is Pentaho using GPL?

    I was trying to understand the Pentaho open source licensing arrangement. Does Pentaho use GPL for their licensing?

    The only project at Pentaho that is GPL licensed is Weka (Data Mining.) You need a commercial license to get rid of the GPL. For more information, contact sales@pentaho.com.

    Here is a summary of the products and licenses:

    Added June 6, 2008:

    Version 2 of the Pentaho BI Platform, as well as future versions, will be distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License Version 2 (GPLv2).

    Pentaho will also provide a "FLOSS Exception", which simplifies distribution of Pentaho BI Platform with certain other open source licenses approved by the Open Source Initiative (www.opensource.org).

    Please refer to the following FAQ before posting questions:
    http://community.pentaho.com/faq/platform_licensing.php

    Generally, if you are an end user of the Pentaho BI platform or distribute a product based on the platform under an OSI approved license covered by the Pentaho FLOSS exception http://www.pentaho.com/license/FLOSS/FLOSS.php, this change should not affect you.
