Portrait: Louis Landry of Joomla! finds direction in FOSS

,----[ Quote ]
| For Louis Landry, a member of the core team for the Joomla! management
| system, free and open source software (FOSS) is not just a hobby, nor just
| the technology behind Jxtended, the consulting business in which he is a
| partner. For Landry, FOSS is also the movement that gave him direction in
| life, and provides both the rationale and the outlet for his diverse
| interests. In fact, he is so enthusiastic about FOSS that he sounds like an
| evangelist for the community whenever it is mentioned.

Ladies and Gentlemen... [Joomla! 1.5]

,----[ Quote ]
| It is with great pride that the Joomla! community announces to the world the
| immediate availability of Joomla! 1.5 Stable [Khepri].  As a community of
| contributors, we have been through celebrations and tribulations. We have had
| fun, and we have worked hard. We have learned from and helped one another.
| What started two and a half years ago with a letter to the community has
| grown into a great opportunity for both the Joomla! project and community to
| benefit from these efforts and to consider our future.      


Joomla! - the licence stays the same

,----[ Quote ]
| Christopher Justice says: "...we haven't changed the license and we
| have no plans to.  We have raised the visibility of the GPL and we're
| encouraging a better understanding of the GPL. It is our view that
| extensions are derivative works and therefore we encourage all
| extensions to be GPL compliant. The Joomla! community has grown to
| over 110,000 members with the same license and a huge community of
| commercial and non-commercial developers. There are some non-GPL
| compliant extensions but the majority of the extensions available
| are GPL. As the project continues to grow, we'll focus more on GPL
| extensions to build a stronger and more open project and community."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
