Jive Software and JSTUN (JSTUN)
Matt Tucker, the CTO of Jive Software contacted me, because one of their Google Summer of Code students was looking for a STUN library written in Java. The student was working on Jive's open source smack library, however, smack is licensed under the Apache License 2.0 and my JSTUN library under GPL. Unfortunately, these two licenses are incompatible which means that JSTUN cannot be integrated into smack without violating the GPL. So, Matt asked me if I would double-license JSTUN to make its license compatible with smack. After a quick thought, I decided to license JSTUN under the Apache License 2.0 as well to support the Summer of Code student. Matt and I had a great email conversation and it looks like we will work together in the future ... Oh, I forgot to mention that I am a proud owner of a Jive Software t-shirt. Jive Software send me one after I boldly asked for one. :-)
