Subject [jira] [Commented] (POOL-354) license problem with latest Apache commons-pool
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2018 14:49:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/POOL-354?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16660763#comment-16660763

Matt Benson commented on POOL-354:
----------------------------------

It looks like the original addition happened with [https://github.com/apache/commons-dbcp/commit/377dd0a46189c53b9af1f89c7e4e9e1bc7698646] .
It would seem that fully hiding the test and dependencies in the associated Maven profile
would insulate downstream users from any surprises when building the code.

> our pom includes various JBoss artifacts.
> * jboss-parent license 'Public Domain' without any further clarification. Would need
a clarification imo.
> * org.jboss.narayana.jta:narayana-jta LGPL
> * org.jboss.spec.javax.transaction:jboss-transaction-api_1.2_spec LGPL
> * org.jboss:jboss-transaction-spi LGPL
> * org.jboss.logging:jboss-logging LGPL
> According to the following LEGAL ticket those dependencies should imo not be there as
they are required in the build:
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-207
> My interpretation is that having LGPL dependencies are oki-ish as long as they are purely
optional. E.g. if they are only in an optional profile in the build and implement some public
api.
> Those deps only got added recently. The commit message is not really clear what it is
about.
