macOS package manager Homebrew removes MongoDB
The macOS package manager, Homebrew announced the removal of MongoDB. Homebrew believes MongoDB is no longer open source after modifying its open-source protocol. The new MongoDB versions are not released under the open-source license, so they are not accepted by the Homebrew core.
MongoDB announced in October last year that it switched its open-source license from GNU AGPLv3 to the Server Side Public License (SSPL). The SSPL explicitly requires cloud vendors hosting MongoDB instances to either obtain a commercial license or open their service source code to the community.
However, the open-source community seems to have a lot of objections to this. Many people think that SSPL is targeted and seriously discriminatory to certain categories of users. This violates the true meaning of the open-source, so Fedora believes that SSPL is not a free software license. Cap and Debian also announced the removal of MongoDB from the distribution.
The Homebrew core list has now removed MongoDB and no longer supports it. MongoDB maintains a custom Homebrew tap on its own.
