Is Mantis Free to use

Post by Karthikkg »

Hi team,
Do we need to buy licence in case if we want to use for commercial purpose(without customization the GUI,but adding custom fields)?

Is Mantis Free to use

Post by HMB »

Dear,

In our academic department, we need to use Mantis with some customizations (add the department name, logo, creation of custom fields, delete some features from php source code directly).
The use of this version will be only for our needs (internal use) in the department (not a version to be commercialized ).
Is it legal? there is any licence contamination? if not what we need to do?
Thank you very much.

Thank you "cas" for your prompt response.
Could you please tell me how to share improvements with the community?
All what I do is some customizations (as I said in my initial question) to let Mantisbt be adequate to our requirements.
Thank you again for the clarification.
