License of common\libkipiplugins

Bugzilla from v.for.vandal@gmail.com
Hello!

This is a copy of wish 380403

I'am working on QML bindings for libkipi (https://github.com/v-for-vandal/kipi-plugins/tree/qtquick) and those bindings reuse some files from common/libkipiplugins/tools. These files are under GPL license but I would like my bindings to be under LGPL license (otherwise no non-GPL application will be able to use them). Is there any way to change license of those files ? May be I can separate those files into their own library, say libkipiplugins-core ?

Also, where can I submit patches ? My pull request at github was closed and I was redirected to Phabricator. At Phabricator I was told that digikam do not use it and redirected to mailing list. What is the correct way ?

Sincerely yours,

Hi,

libkipiplugins is a private library. It's not public. There is no plan
to render this lib as public, because it's not the goal of this part.

You can re-use this code on your QML implementation. There is no plan
to extend QML port. C++ is enough to maintain.

All patches must be submited to your bugzilla entry. This is the right place.
