I was just wounding if I can do a fork of the 5.1.25 version? I saw in the license that I would have to get a written permission from you guys for me to to this.

Hi Etrix,

I had to look first in the license...

In my opinion a "fork" isn't a "products derived from this software" (see number 5 in the license), so you don't need a written permission.

But this is just me personal opinion...


Using Phorum since 7/2000: (actual version 5.2.23)
Modules "Made in Germany" for version 5.2: Author_as_Sender, CarCost, Close_Topic, Conceal_Message_Timestamp,
Format_Email, Index_Structure, Mailing_List, Pervasive_Forum, Spritmonitor, Terms_of_Service and German_Language_Files_Package.

I see, thanks for letting me know. I must have read that wrong.

The point is simply: you can do a fork but you are not allowed to call it phorum.
