Why does Discourse Translator have the MIT license?

Why does this plugin have the MIT license instead of the usual GPLv2?

I wonder if this should be brought back in line with the rest of the Discourse code.

They updated recently the license of all plugins and theme components in favor of MIT, adding any missing ones.

I don’t know the specific reason behind, but I think this change makes sense. The MIT license is simple, straight, and permissive. Less friction and ambiguity. It matches well the Discourse’s open-source philosophy. :thinking:
