    Anyone looking at this, have a look at pandoc that really is a great tool. Much more control and of course free.

    🔥 Static site generator for Deno 🦕

    Agreed, it really does need to be sorted out. I guess for me, what would happen if someone created a wrapper around Pandoc in NodeJS and published it to NPM... would that package need to inherit the GPL licence? I'd say yes otherwise the very purpose of GPL is undermined and closed-source projects could bypass the licence terms with ease. Now let's say that someone creates a Lume plugin that imports that NPM package so users can convert their assets at build time into more permanent versions, like DOCX to PDF. Should this plugin inherit the package's GPL licence? Now let's say someone uses that Lume plugin in their site. Does that site then need to inherit the plugin's GPL licence? Ambiguity in the first instance creates a chain of ambiguity down the line. This kind of thing is so prevalent on NPM too, just search for git wrappers. Git doesn't even have a runtime exception like GCC does.
