Any chance you change the License?

Great work - very impressed.  We would love to use it, but the "viral" nature of the GPL license prevents us from legally being able to use this in our software (because we would risk having to make our software GPL as well).  Any chance you would consider changing the license to use one of the more "friendly" ones on Codeplex.  Again great work!

Hi Bryan.

No problem. Which one do you prefer? Apache 2.0 is OK?

Our legal team has already approved the ones below and so my preference would be one of them as that makes it easiest for us to adopt the library.

  • Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL)
  • New BSD License
  • The MIT License

Our project is a web app to manage data warehouse metadata for healthcare systems.  It is not open source.
