Subject Re: [HEADS-UP] Possible issue with neo4j
Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 06:09:25 GMT
Just looking at the spring-data-neo4 (which is ASL 2) - it uses directly org.neo4j.graphdb
directly - which is an (A)GPLv3 licence. 
I agree with Hadrian, we would be infecting users of camel-spring-neo4j with (A)GPLv3 - which
is very undesirable. Unless I've missed a different licence for the client-side piece of neo4j
that meets with our licence restrictions[2] - it should be moved to camel-extra with appropriate
warnings.

thanks,

Rob
