Plugins under the Apache 2.0 license

(Dmitrii Shiriaev) #1

we tried to publish our plugin GitHub - plesk/matomo-tracking-cli: Matomo TrackingCLI Plugin. Import tracking data to Matomo via CLI and stdin. using the following guide: Distributing Your Plugin: Develop - Matomo Analytics (formerly Piwik Analytics) - Developer Docs - v3, but with no luck. We received the following notification from your side:

-> The metadata structure in your plugin.json file is not valid. The validator returned:
license: Does not have a value in the enumeration Array
[0] => GPL-3.0+
[1] => GPL v3+
[2] => GPL-3.0
[3] => BSD AND GPL-3.0+
[4] => InnoCraft EULA
[5] => GPL-2.0-only
[6] => GPL-2.0+
[7] => MIT
[8] => CC0-1.0
[9] => WTFPL

We published our plugin under the Apache-2.0 license, which is compatible with GPL-3.0, for more details, see, for example, Apache License - Wikipedia. Can you add the support of plugins under the Apache-2.0 license in your Marketplace ?

Thanks for creating a new plugin.

I don’t see any reason against supporting Apache 2.0 plugins so I have forwarded this to the team.

Apache-2.0 has been added to the list and you should now be able to publish the plugin.

Thank you! Now the plugin is published on the Marketplace.
