  • RubyGems has the most legal problems. Explanation?

    On the license in 2011: Bundler, which most people use to generate gem scaffolding, added the MIT license as default in 2011. I bet you'll see a change around that time where older gems are more likely to have a different license (Apache 2.0 maybe?) and newer gems are more often MIT. I'd also guess older gems are more likely to be indirect dependencies since they're probably (?) more likely to implement lower level pieces which were since wrapped up, so this could explain that phenomenon too.
