Subject [jira] [Commented] (DERBY-5587) Due to licensing issues, fix or remove the monohtml docs posted on Derby's documentation page.
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2012 22:28:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5587?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13213034#comment-13213034

Myrna van Lunteren commented on DERBY-5587:

I have been thinking about this, and looking on web sites, and it seems to me I have been
misunderstanding the meaning of 'derived work'.
>From what I gather now from various web sites, including wikipedia, derived work means:
"a new version of the original."

Thus, the monohtml docs are *not* a derived work. They're the result of using the original.
Thus, no notice is necessary.

So, we don't need to remove them - at least not from old versions.

Does this make sense?

I think it is still a good idea to remove the file, and thus, to no longer build the monohtml
going forward, because of the loopiness of not having permission to distribute the fo2html.xsl
file and the requirement within Apache to distribute an src version with a release.

But it seems to me this issue can be closed.

> The monohtml versions of Derby's docs (from 10.3 onwards) need a legal notice. We should
either add that notice to the monohtml docs or we should remove them from the Derby website.
This issue is discussed in the following derby-dev email thread: http://old.nabble.com/Copyright-clairification-for-fo2html.xsl-in-Derby-software.-to33087407.html#a33087407
