09:18 PM jepler: interesting, FreeRTOS relicensed from GPL-with-no-benchmarking-clause to MIT by Amazon
09:20 PM skunkworks: is that good or bad?
09:20 PM jepler: only 3 MCUs are supported by Amazon's version, and taking any existing port not relicensed by Amazon would be dubious from a license point of view, since that other port might be GPL-with-incompatible-clause for all you know
09:20 PM jepler: GPL-with-additional-restrictions is a bad license, so I think this is good
09:20 PM skunkworks: cool
09:21 PM jepler: (because GPL-with-additional-restrictions can't be used with GPL)
09:21 PM jepler: hi skunkworks thanks for putting that new limit3 through its paces
09:21 PM skunkworks: No problem. It is something I needed - so win win :)
09:23 PM jepler: are you running that machine on 2.7 or on master?
09:23 PM skunkworks: 2.7
09:24 PM skunkworks: I was running zultrons branch
09:24 PM jepler: ok
09:24 PM jepler: the reporter of #240 was on 2.8
09:24 PM jepler: "2.8"
09:24 PM skunkworks: I think it is 2.7.9 for some reason.. but it doesn't really touch anything
09:25 PM skunkworks: right - I ran into the bug on 2.7 - the code hasn't changed at all
09:26 PM jepler: nope
09:26 PM jepler: if you weren't trying to run 2.7 on that machine I'd feel better about recommending the change be made in master only
09:26 PM jepler: that is all
09:29 PM skunkworks: I know it is a little iffy to put it into 2.7.. And it would be pretty easy for someone to take the comp from master and use it in 2.7.. but I think the broken-ness of limit3 currently - makes me think that it can't hurt and probably improve the situation.
09:46 PM KimK: jepler: Link? All I could find was this "FreeRTOS is not open source (again)" from 2016: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/esp-open-rtos/D9_1KPt0y9U
10:09 PM KimK: OK, this is better: https://www.freertos.org/
