Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache CouchDB 1.5.0-rc.2
Date Fri, 11 Oct 2013 12:06:24 GMT
Benoit, just to address your concerns, the way copyright works is that if
you don't grant permissions, copyright is in effect in full force. So the
lack of our documenting the licences, in the worst case, might mean that
you do not have the permission to redistribute, and so on. (Certainly not
that you have permission to do anything you like.) But of course, we've
verified that from a legal perspective, these files are perfectly fine and
we can distribute them in accordance with our third-party licensing policy.
So the issue is theoretical only. If someone was to spot the file, and
wonder what the license is, they could ask us, and we could point them to
the mailing list posts, and say "it's fine, and sorry for the bug, we'll
fix it in the next release."
