Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-146) Establish legal use of patches/systemvm/debian/config/etc/vpcdnsmasq.conf
Date Thu, 20 Sep 2012 20:13:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-146?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13459907#comment-13459907
] 

Joe Brockmeier commented on CLOUDSTACK-146:
-------------------------------------------

This appears to be a modified version of the sample configuration that's in the upstread Debian
package for dnsmasq.

The upstream package itself is GPLv2/GPLv3. I touched base with the author (Simon Kelley)
to see if he considered the sample configuration file to be copyrighted and under the GPL.
He has kindly replied that he considers the sample configuration public domain, and we are
"welcome to use it as required."

I'll attach the email to this ticket, but we should be able to consider this definitively
legal to use.

> 1) Written specifically for CloudStack 
> 2) Taken (and perhaps modified) from a source that has an ASLv2 compatible license 
> 3) Taken (and perhaps modified) from a source that does not have a compatible license,
and then figure out what to do about it.
