So you are saying that GPL means any software built on the GPL frameworks has also to be GPL?

is that the problem?

An open source Core Animation would be pretty amazing, and with that and the other frameworks, Chameleon should be able to run! That'd be pretty impressive!

Chameleon is all under a BSD license which is far more permissive than GPL, and that's the way I like it. I personally dislike the GPL and find it too restrictive. I understand the goals, but I don't agree it's necessary to strong-arm people into sharing. Chameleon has now had several contributions from a number of others and I suspect they would also all have to agree to dual license their contributions. While not an insurmountable problem, I have no interest in doing it.

It should be possible to use Chameleon to test their Core Animation layer and software could even be built using the whole open source stack once it's complete, but no, I don't want to add any additional restrictions to my code.
