Greenify is Sebastian.
We definitely have not assigned copyright to the D language foundation for Phobos. It was a requirement for DMD front end, not for any libraries. The wiki should be reverted.
Here is an archived discussion we had at the time:
To answer the original question, you need a boost license to get something into Phobos. I am not a lawyer, but I *believe* the boost license would satisfy the requirements of the MIT license. So I think you could just use it. But I’m not 100% sure.
Separately, my opinion is that the library in question does not need to go into phobos. It belongs in code.dlang.org <http://code.dlang.org/>. Is it not possible to use it from there?
