Well, yes and no ... On the Plone Foundation site they say they are not
changing the license *for now*, but they are changing the contributor's
agreement - thy have been asking contributors to assign their rights
back to the foundation, and they are looking at (perhaps) providing for
dual licensing in the future.

On the bright side, they say they plan to continue with a GPL-compatible
(or at least some open source style) license forever, and hope to write
language to that effect into the foundation's charter.
