Lucee licensing clarity (and Quora question)

I had the opportunity to recommend Lucee in a question on quora.com
yesterday:

http://www.quora.com/ColdFusion-Railo-Adobe-BlueDragon-or-OpenBD-And-Why

The questioner was already familiar with Railo, but was confused in looking
at the Lucee website. He couldn’t find docs (I referred him to
luceedocs.com) and it wasn’t clear to him that Lucee is a free/open source
product.

I looked at lucee.org and read this:

http://lucee.org/about.html

Upon reviewing this, I think the sentence about licensing is a little
unclear-- it says that Railo was released under the LGPL, but doesn’t make
it clear that Lucee is also released under the LGPL. I realize that if
you’re familiar with the LGPL this is obvious, but it may not be clear to
everyone.

Anyway, the purpose of my email is both to mention this to anyone who may
have the ability to make things a little clearer on the web site, and to
suggest that if you have more to say about Lucee, you go post an answer on
Quora.

Thx for your post on quora, lgpl is likes herpes when you have it is hard
to get rid of it and it is highly infectious (not speaking of personal
experience;-) ).
But you are right, if you not aware of this, the text is not clear, we will
improve the text.

I so misread that as a typo of “Igal”. [nervous giggle]

Sorry Igal. In my defence I was going "jeez Micha, that’s well harsh"On 7 March 2015 at 07:41, Michael Offner <@Michael_Offner1> wrote:
