What is the good way to change the license of an opensource project?

  • I guess it depends of the agreements of the contributors
    • Do i need 100% approval?
    • What if one contributor disagree or one contributor didn't answer?
  • What about versions?
    • If change happens at version X, does it apply for previous versions?
  • Where should it be mentioned? On homepage at least. Also in the code?
  • @PhilippeOmbredanne I would be inclined to agree, but it should be made known that the OP closed his own question as a duplicate, because the Community user is on the list of those who voted to close.
