The License of Spigot

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by DiamondIceNS, Apr 28, 2017.

  1. I'm a budding developer building a simple Spigot plugin to distribute and I'm trying to do my homework on licenses.

    As an act of good faith, I'm compiling all the licenses for all the libraries that I use. So, what exactly is the license for Spigot? I'm looking at their repo and noting Bukkit is GPL and CraftBukkit is LGPL, but Spigot itself has no LICENSE.txt that I can find. I assume it's probably a version of GPL due to the copyleft in Bukkit but I want to be sure.

    Most people I have seen on Spigot tend to not worry about licenses. This is likely not a good thing, but it is the way it is. I'm sure there will be someone who knows though, I would try logging on to the spigot IRC (Chat tab on the website), there are many knowledgable people there who may be able to help.
