He said it's free software, but where are sources and licence's
condition?

He might be referring to cost rather than freedom.

Source would be the files contained in the the extension file (just open that file as an archive), but I don't see any license indicated there, so I guess it's proprietary.

It's possible that the author of this is just ignorant of what "no license" actually entails; you could ask.

The original application was actually GPLv3; this guy simply did bug fixes so I don't think that is legal to make a GPL app proprietary. Someone should definitely contact him about this issue. I found his e-mail if you want to reach out to him: pag77[at]mail(dot)ru

I sent him an email. If more people do this, it may be fixed sooner.

Here is the email I sent him:

>Thank you for carrying on the development of Screengrab.
>I noticed that there is no license included on the project page, or in the source code of Screengrab (fix version).
>The original Screengrab code is licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3, which I attached to this email. A requirement of the GNU GPL is that all derivatives must be under the same license, and the licensing has apparently been removed. In order to make the addon GPL-compliant, you must change the license to the GPL version 3.

I'd got just a response of him one week ago : 'yes, it's free
software' ...

Silly question:
Has source code on .xpi file?

$ strings addons.xpi | more
No traces of sources or sort of.

I know it's a package, so how can I read .xpi file?

A .xpi file is just a .zip renamed. It can be extracted.

And if actually he puts sources under MPL, is he doing wrong ?

It needs to be GPL v3.

He responded to my e-mail confirming the license is GPLv3; he is planning to get it adjusted on Mozilla Addons. :)
