Redis y el fork “obligado” al cambiar la licencia

Esto es lo que me gusta el movimiento Open Source, si el desarrollador se va por un camino que es diferente al de la comunidad entonces la comunidad tiene el derecho de hacer un fork y continuar sin tener que estar a expensas del desarrollador.

Es decir, no le quito ningún mérito a cualquiera de las dos partes. read more
