    v1 v2  
    66I find it fruitless to just exchange arguments, will write more to that at the end. But for the sake of the arguments, they still need to be correct in the details: 
    77 
    8 From what I can see is that Ellias Torres wrote an "An Atom Publishing Protocol implementation for WordPress" (app.php). [http://dev.torrez.us/public/2006/wp-app/trunk/app.php That] code was released under '''GPL v2 or later''' and has been put into Wordpress while wordpress still was released under GPL (not version restricted). That means the original commit already technically violated the license. So much for the "originally written version" and assumed it was released under GPL v2 or later. Keep in mind that Torrez had an SVN of it's own to develop the code.

    1010The later version you talk about has been published on google code under an incompatible license and has been "brought in" '''as the changeset states'''. In case it was brought in - which is the documentation about what was done - there ''technically'' ''is'' a violation. Please mind the technically.
