Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2296) Possible non-free software included
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2014 07:12:18 GMT


Dave Cottlehuber commented on COUCHDB-2296:

I emailed the author and asked if the terms can be clarified. In the event I need some Japanese
assistance I know who to ask :-).

 It seems that the file share/www/script/base64.js is licensed under terms that are vague
enough to perhaps be unenforceable.  The license matches no known open source license, and
though the authors intent is clear to open source it to some extent, the question is with
what restrictions.  Defining it as "free" is not enough to meet the DFSG requirements in my
mind, and I wanted to raise it to your attention in the case that it doesn't match yours either.
