Subject Re: [net] FTPS submission - legal issues
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2006 04:36:26 GMT
Looks like you're in moderation there.

I'll send the below when I see the email there:

Are Paul and Josejuan the only contributors to the work? Usually you
need to have the permission of every committer (contributor?) to the
work to allow relicencing. That part is all about copyright law I
think.

Does the com.sun bit mean that a separate jar is needed, or is it part
of the JVM?

In the latter case I think we'll find out that things are legally
okay; if the former then the current policy is that that is okay
(depends on licence, but we're shipping lots of Sun licenced works),
but it's likely to require some hoops in the near future.
