Subject RE: [math] Multivariate Gaussian Mixture Model
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2012 22:22:26 GMT
Luc,

Yes, that should work for my company's needs.  Thank you for clearing that up for me.  I will
plan to submit in the next few weeks.

This should be my last legal question for awhile, but I also wanted to ask about submitting
a note to a statistical journal.  The method I have implemented is not new, of course, but
it might be worth drawing some attention to it, which would also draw attention to Apache
Commons Math.  Is there any restriction against doing so?  I need to house the software for
download somewhere if I mention it in a journal paper or note, so it might as well be where
I plan to submit it anyway.

Thanks,
Jared

Yes, there are no copyright transfer, the Apache Foundation only get a
licence from you.

Also note that for existing code, we rather need a Software Grant, not
an ICLA. An ICLA is needed tp cover work to be done later on by one
regular contributor. A software grant is for existing work already done
outside from Apache and imported.

The top header must be the Apache header, and we forbid use of the
@author statement (authors change as the file is modified through bug
fixes).

Authors are acknowledged in the NOTICE file that is distributed with
both source and binary versions, and which must also be reproduced by
anyone who redistribute our code. In fact, your company will get better
visibility through this file than through comments on the source files.

Does this fits your company requirements ?

best regards,
Luc
