There are actually a few reasons I chose the MIT license:
1) It's one of the most permissive licenses around.
2) I originally had plans to extend backrest to other database systems.
Nearly two years into development I don't think that sounds like a
great idea anymore but it was the original plan.
3) It's common for GitHub projects and backrest has lived there its
I'm not against a license change in theory though I can't see why it
matters very much.
