Hallo Leute und ein frohes neues Jahr.

Für Magento wird ja die OSL 3.0 Lizenz benutzt.
Aus der FAQ lese ich, dass diese ein ähnliches copyleft verfahren hat, wie die gpl.

I’m an end user, what does “open source software” mean to me?
You are free to download, copy and modify Magento. You can also be assured that Magento will continue to thrive because all contributions made back to the software by others will also be available under the same license. The source code will always be freely available and continue to evolve as the community develops new features, because the open source community uses the same OSL 3.0 license for Magento.

... und ...

I’m a developer, what does the OSL 3.0 license mean to me?
OSL 3.0 allows developers full access to the Magento source code. Developers can modify and customize the software and distribute their own derivative works under the OSL 3.0 license. This will lead to a larger community of developers enhancing Magento in ways that are available to all.

Andersherum findet man im englischen Forum ein Unterforum mit folgender Beschreibung:

Magento Connect
Magento Connect is an upcoming marketplace for the distribution of community and commercial Magento products and services.

Ich bin ein wenig verwirrt. Wer weiss, was es mit den kommerziellen Distributionen und Produkten um Magento auf sich hat?

Schöne Grüße,

Markus
