Hi - Thanks for the reference

Hi -

Thanks for the reference to my research. Here is the link . . . http://gpl3.blogspot.com/2007/08/gplv3-past-5k-mark-and-going-strong.html

The big part of that number is that most of the support for GPLv3 was there long before the license was released in final form, thanks in large part to the "or later" clause encourages strongly by the FSF. More here . . .

Thanks for the mention!

Regards,

Ernie

How do you get 50% from these numbers?

Projects converted to GPLv3: 731
Projects licensed under GPLv2 or Later: 5523

???

'Estimated current "or later" impact: 9,082 (50 percent of GPL)'

ESTIMATED, and yet the article's headline claims that the conversion IS 50%?
