digitalmars.D.announce - DUB registry is now Boost licensed

Just a quick heads-up at all those people how were considering of rolling a customized dub in-house (or on your favorite PaaS provider). You can now modify it without needing to publish all your patches which the GPL license before required. Of course, improvement patches (aka PRs) are still very welcome ;-) See also: https://github.com/dlang/dub-registry/pull/272

You are only required to make the source of a derived work available to recipients of that derived work. It's unlikely that anyone was ever distributing modified versions of the dub registry but wanted to keep their source code secret from the recipients.
