There was a warning - http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2008/Sep-07.html
not to use MEF because of it's license - https://mef.codeplex.com/license (MS-PL)

2010-04-12 ( date is from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Managed_Extensibility_Framework )
Stable release V1 in .NET Framework 4.0

2010-06-25
MEF was included into Mono 2.8:
https://github.com/mono/mono/tree/mono-2-8/mcs/class/System.ComponentModel.Composition
(without clean explaination in release notes -

Microsoft published

.Net Framework under open source license (MIT/Apache 2.0)
see also http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2014/Nov-12.html

"Microsoft is providing the full .NET server stack in open source, including ASP.NET, the .NET compiler, the .NET Core Runtime, Framework and Libraries, enabling developers to build with .NET across Windows, Mac or Linux."

So, is the code of V1 under MIT license now?
