    Phoronix: Facebook Open-Sources Its C++ HTTP Framework/Server

    Facebook's latest open-source code contribution to the public is Proxygen, a C++ HTTP framework with HTTP/SPDY server capabilities that it's been using internally in place of Apache and Nginx servers...

    Three clauses is too many clauses!

    Why not the 2-clause BSD license (or the ISC license) ?

    Sounds really nice with a HTTP framework though, that implements the protocol.
    Then anyone can write the server themselves how they see fit, with threads, fibers, async, select or poll, epoll, kpoll or whatever.

      Benchmarks please

      Michael, you've been asking for feedback on what benchmarks to run - how about NGinx v Apache v Facebook HTTPD?

        Given that my most advanced web setup is CGit, to me it looks like another 'please audit our code! here!'
        But I hope I am wrong.

          They probably require excessive attribution. I'd also prefer the 2-clause a bit more. In a previous company I worked we often took open source 2-clause BSD libraries and claimed their 100% our own code in the product. Never got caught.

            It barely matters, it's not hard to add a notice. Only a few KB at most. I like zlib as a short lax/permissive license, personally.

            Thanks for telling us you took free/libre code and made it proprietary.
