...but if the mod requires nuke to run then it is covered by the GPL.

jjh221, KGuske has provided you with a link on his site. Just use it. EDL is what I use here. I bought it to support Shaun way back when Smile.

But it does continue to raise the constant very often misunderstanding of GPL vs. non GPL. Since phpNuke is GPL, all derivatives, including RavenNuke(tm) must be GPL also - No exceptions. The GPL states that if an application is released as GPL then all code that requires phpNuke to run must be licensed as GPL. The GPL does allow for charging a reasonable fee for the delivery medium of the script, but not for use of the script. Once you have a copy of the script you can release it for free and it is legal. Releasing it for free, at this point, becomes an ethical/professional issue.

That's why I don't "charge" for RavenNuke(tm) and other scripts I write for the public. It really becomes a lost cause. Legally an author has no recourse nor legal standing when it gets into the public.

For further and a pretty thorough discussion on this, see these posts. Warning: Danger Will Robinson! The debate can get heated at times killing me

Download it and see. I'm pretty sure it's for the whole thing.

Not on my site - just the changes to make it work with nukeWYSIWYG.
