What's up with Snort licensing?
There have been a lot of questions and speculation about the things we (Sourcefire) have been changing in Snort's licensing recently and it needs to be addressed so that we can clear the air. There are three things that people have been asking questions about or having issues with.
1) GPL v2 lock that we put in place on June 29th.
2) "Clarifications" in Snort's license language (Snort 3.0).
3) "Clarifications" with regard to assignments of ownership for contributed code (Snort 3.0).
