windrose

Hi, ok for the code, here it is, and by advance, sorry for

    > my poor english :-/

Hi Lionel, thanks for this code. I took a quick peek. matplotlib
does not accept code under the GPL license. The license we use is
based on the python software foundation license and is more permissive
than the GPL, in that it allows people to redistribute matplotlib in
closed-source proprietary apps. So if you would like for us to
include your windrose code (or a derivative of it) we will need it
preferably under the matplotlib license, or a BSD/MIT like license.

Here is a post I wrote earlier in another project I was involved in
about why I prefer the use of more permissive BSD-like licenses like
the python license

Thanks!

The same code, with the right license :slight_smile:
Hope it can help someone.
