Bismuth KDE Plasma extension
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Alternate homepage: https://bismuth-forge.github.io/bismuth/

  • You should include this because it's a good productivity tool. It's also very easy to use when compared to other window tiling managers.
  • I don't know if it's open source, I can't seem to find anything about this on it's homepage.
  • Releases are here: https://github.com/Bismuth-Forge/bismuth/releases
  • I don't know what upstream means or what the inclusion policy is but I think I already added the link to the source repository.

Thank you!

It is open source, though what license it uses is not clear. The author linked to an empty MIT license without filling out the copyright holders and year.

Very, very interesting...

I forgot to say (and I think this is important) that this is a fork for Krohnkite. I know it says on the website but I should have had all the information here. I apologize for that.

Gavin I will send a message to the author and ask if he can update that information. He's very friendly. : )

Author of Bismuth here.

it uses is not clear. The author linked to an empty MIT license without filling out the copyright holders and year.

The project is MIT licensed. It is compliant with the Reuse specification. The LICENSE file in the repo is a symlink linked to the MIT txt file required by Reuse. It was created to make GitHub see the license of the project, but apparently it does not work as good as expected.
