Subject copyright infringement in CouchDB 1.5.0
Date Tue, 19 Nov 2013 21:18:37 GMT
Hi,

The file src/fauxton/assets/js/libs/jshint.js in CouchDB 1.5.0 has a
non-free license. It contains this phrase: "The Software shall be used
for Good, not Evil". Please see how others like Google and Debian
realized that this makes it non-free software[1][2].
Other projects like the other NoSQL database, WhiteDB migrate to a free
JSON parser[3] called YAJL[4].

Kind regards,
Laszlo/GCS
