Description

(followup to #2857)

Our examples are licensed under GPL, except if otherwise noted.

Place a license file into the examples root.

(Sidenote: as Wt supports windows, the file should be named LICENSE.TXT and not LICENSE)

What's the benefit of an extra copy of the license file?

This keeps the example source independent from the main source (if I remember right, the examples exist as a separate package, too).

Additionally, I got a bit confused about the licensing (see #2857).

Hey,

If distributions are breaking up the single Wt tar.gz (which is fine for us!) in different packages, then it's up to them to make sure the license is clear for each part.

Consider filing a bug with the specific distribution which doesn't do this.

Regards,

koen

You should consider to start treating wt like a product. A nice example is given by the http://pocoproject.org/.
