to ActiveScaffold : Ruby on Rails plugin
Hi,

I'm the maintainer of an open source project called Kete (http://
kete.net.nz) that uses ActiveScaffold. Thanks for the handy
software. It's been a great resource for rolling out simple admin
interfaces rapidly.

I'm writing because we license Kete under GPL 2 and most of the
plugins have compatible licenses, including the majority of
ActiveScaffold, however it has been raised in
http://kete.lighthouseapp.com/projects/14288/tickets/26-license-snafu
that frontends/default/javascripts/rico_corner.js has an Apache 2.0
license that isn't.

There are some solutions that have been suggested:

* Kete updates to GPL 3 (not quite ready to do this without some more
homework on the Kete project's part)

* Kete works around rico_corner.js by implementing with a replacement
with compatible license (rather not spend time on this or fork if it
can be avoided)

* Kete gets specific permission to use rico_corner.js (i.e. Kete gets
a license other than existing one to use it)

From my perspective the last suggestion is the easiest for both
projects. Is it possible? May Kete haver permission pretty please?

Cheers,
Walter
