[Bf-committers] Can BGE be relicensed?

I think a license like MIT is too liberal. FSF recommends against it, 
because you lose the GPL advantage that proprietary software does not 
have and can't take advantage of.

So I recommend a license that's GPL like (i.e. open source, free 
software), so either GPL, LGPL or like you said some GPL exception that 
is a good balance and doesn't conflict with App Store agreements.

If BGE becomes compatible with App Stores, I think that would make it 
more than viable for a long time.
