If I have a proprietary project, that is intended to be distributed commercially, and there is a wiki that is required with it,
can I use MediaWiki for the purpose?
The Wiki portion will be hosted separately and the communication with it from the rest of the project will happen over REST.
Could anyone please help me with understanding the
following passage of GPL-2.0:
"These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms,
do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as part
of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose
permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it."
Both products are separate with respect to functionality.
Besides, the REST API in MediaWiki, I believe, is there for such communications.
Does making a REST call to MediaWiki makes the calling project fall under the GPL's sphere?
Thanks for the product, it works great.
Thanks for your time.
