Reason for license change (LGPL -> AGPL)

Austin English
Hi there,

I'm curious why the license was changed from LGPL to AGPL. I searched
all issues but couldn't find anything relevant.

Thanks!

Hi Austin,

AGPL is a better fit for a web app than LGPL. LGPL was intended for libraries and didn't contain important clauses for the web distribution. AGPL is the right *GPL for the web. Here's a good overview - https://tldrlegal.com/license/gnu-affero-general-public-license-v3-(agpl-3.0)

Hope that helps,
Baruch
