Software originally developed by BiCity Project
The BiCity Project normally releases its original software under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License (AGPL). This license permits use, modification, and (re)distribution of BiCity software provided that all modifications and additions are also distributed under the terms of the AGPL.
Software developed by third parties
In some cases The BiCity Project uses and integrates in its software components developed by third parties. BiCity tries as much as possible to use and integrate software that is released under open source licenses compatible with the GNU AGPL.
However, in some cases it is not possible or not appropriate to use the AGPL; for example when BiCity software is based on existing open source software that uses a different and 'incompatible' license. In these cases the related packages may be redistributed by BiCity as a mere aggregation without integration with the original BiCity software, and each package remains governed by its respective license.
Below is a list of software components developed by third parties and used by BiCity Project, with their respective licenses.
