Package licensing and enterprise use - R Consortium
When we ask representatives of enterprises who are responsible for approving the use of third-party software what would make their easier, a few suggestions for package authors and maintainers arise concerning licensing:

* Packages should not depend on other packages that have incompatibly licensed materials
* Use the most permissive license possible for your package, for example, LGPL, GPL–3 or GPL>=2, as opposed to just GPL–2
* Minimize the number of dependent packages whenever possible, since each one requires its own approval process which affects adoption
* Avoid using packages with more restrictive licensing terms than you intend for your package

We encourage package authors and maintainers to review their dependent packages and look for opportunities to address the suggestions above. Where possible, encourage dependent package authors and maintainers to adopt more permissive licenses as well. Where not possible, ask whether the functionality provided by the dependent package is essential.

For enterprise users of open source software, ask your Legal departments to share their concerns with developers so more informed choices can be made in the future.
