I am studying open source licenses and I am translating the licenses
from english to korean.
I understand compatibility of open source licensesas follows.
MIT --> LGPL 2.1or GPL
LGPL 2.1--> GPL
MIT + LGPL 2.1--> MIT or LGPL 2.1
when MIT + Your code (separate)LGPL 2.1--> MIT
when MIT + Your code (together)LGPL 2.1--> LGPL 2.1
MIT + GPL --> GPL
LGPL 2.1+ GPL --> GPL
MIT + LGPL 2.1+ GPL --> GPL
I am studying LGPL 3.0 and english.
Thanks and Regards,

I opened this post because I am making an application that I have to release
as open source (I'm not forced to use a specific license)
My situation is as follows:
** Cakephp 1.2 RC3 -> MIT
** My code (views, controllers, models etc) -> GPL?
** Some code with LGPL (tcpdf, for example TinyMCE)
then, which is the best way to publish the application in one package?
On the one hand I read that MIT, GPL and LGPL are compatible but on the
other that if I use GPL code in part forces me to use GPL code in all code
... on the other side as section 3 of the LGPL can convert to LPG but i dont
know not changes that I have to do exactly
greetings and thank you very much
PD: forgiveness for my English
