ArgyllCMS seems to include a very old version of yagl - version 0.3.0. Upstream (http://lloyd.github.com/yajl/) seems to be on version 1.0.5 right now. Are there any security problems or fixes in the last few releases? I'm also not sure if shipping yajl as part of a GPLv3 application is allowed, I mean looking at jcnf/yajl/COPYING that seems pretty GPLv3 incompatible. Debian seems to identify yagl as GPL version 2.
The COPYING file clearly indicates it is a free use, MIT/BSD style copyright, which was one of the primary reasons I chose to use it, and hence is compatible with any GPL code. In fact, right at the top of <http://lloyd.github.com/yajl/> it says "YAJL is released under the BSD license." I'm not sure which version it is, since there doesn't seem to be a version number in any of the source or documentation files. I'd be surprised if it is 0.3.0 though. I'll figure out what it is and set the appropriate macros. I have made a few modifications as used by Argyll to support reading and setting comments, so maybe I'll see if I can feed them back upstream. Graeme Gill.
