OOXML SDK License RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,

    I would like to suggest that the OOXML SDK be released under the Microsoft Permissive License (MS-PL) as that would its redistribution by third parties, and would allow software built with it to be redistributed.

    It would also allow third-parties to alter OOXML to follow the final ISO specifications, and would make it a lot simpler for those of us using Linux to redistribute software using OOXML (Linux distribution have strict guidelines on dependencies and the license terms that are suitable for redistribution).

    I have brought this up with the OOXML bloggers, but this request seems to have fallen in deaf ears.
