    Dears,

    We are currently using our own custom plugin for our timeline (ACF based).

    We consider switching to the timeline-block which sounds really great.

    But after further investigation, it seems that the Gutenberg block is not provided with its source code (only a compiled version includes/cool-timeline-block/dist/blocks.build.js is).

    It’s a blocking factor (without the source code we could not do any patch or derivative template).
    Still, since the project is mentioning the GPLv2 or later for its source code, could you please add the source code of all compiled assets as part of the SVN repository?

    Thank you!

    Reminder (quoting from https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/issues/5281#issuecomment-368754372) :

    Gutenberg is licensed under the GPLv2+, the same as WordPress Core. The MIT license is considered GPL compatible by the Free Software Foundation, which allows us to use React in Gutenberg.

    In Gutenberg, blocks are programmed in a similar way to widgets or other WordPress plugins, they are directly linked to WordPress’ APIs. With that in mind, the advice we received from the Software Freedom Law Center years ago also applies to the JavaScript that you write to create blocks: the code is directly linked to WordPress’ (or Gutenberg’s) GPLv2-licensed JavaScript, so must have a GPLv2-compatible license.

    And so, the overall position of the WordPress project remains unchanged: plugins or themes hosted on the WordPress.org directories must be GPLv2 compatible.
