Hi Ryan,
Recently I've read both sides of the history with delve labs and I want to say that I'm just a normal user meaning that I only use this awesome open project to harden my sites I know that you have put many effort in this project and I'm with you always that the normal usage won't be limited to things, the other thing that I was wondering is about all the contributions of the community you have permission from all these contributors to change the license? or you don't need it .

Thanks in advanced and regards.
Hector J.
