XRuby has been using GPL license, which is more restrictive than BSD and will cause problems for users who can not open source their software.
 
I am considering to change the license BSD, but to do so I need permission of all xruby contributors to agree to make this change.
 
Please let me your opinions.
 
Thanks.

GPL is more friendly for a product, which means more like *use(not
part of the delivery)* other than *integrate with(part of the
delivery)*

As XRuby more likely to be a library to be integrated with, I agree
that using BSD or Apache style license. Or LGPL is also OK.
