RedisLabs license changes

Mike Thomsen
https://news.slashdot.org/story/19/02/22/2155223/redis-changes-its-open-source-license----again

The reporting on it is sorta ambiguous as to whether the core Redis has
stopped being BSD or whether it's just RedisLabs' modules that are
affected. I wanted to bring this up now for discussion because the initial
reporting is very unfavorable on the implications for applications that
use, let alone depend on Redis for what Redis typically does.

For now Redis.io still says it's 3 Clause BSD, but I am going to try to
look into it more closely.

Is there a separate license for a client driver?

After digging around, it appears that Redis itself is still BSD licensed.
It was just the add-ons from RedisLabs.
