Do you think that it would be the best course of action to stay in the GPL ? and why ?
I think it would be the best course of action to have a license for the OVP project (mind my words about OAPI in general) that fulfills Martin's points without much law consideration. GPL sure is on the safe side in this regards.
But that's just my opinion, I can't DO anything about it (neither promote nor deny), because I have zero copyrights in the OVP or D3D9Client project. All copyright holders have to agree for a license change to happen.
Generally speaking, I still think that GPL is the best license for community open-source projects. Not only for the source readability of all aspects of it, but also for the re-distribution rights, which are essentially just as important to me. However, I am not the right person you have to convince to change the status-quo. Those are Martin and the other graphics client developers.
Show them a detailed proposal and I'm sure there is a reasonable middle-ground (between now and what you wish for) to find.
