Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-810) Fullscreen plugin is /not/ under the Apache license
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 14:36:50 GMT


Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot commented on DIRSTUDIO-810:

Hi Joerg,

At the time we started the Apache Directory Studio (back in 2006), I remember one of our members
asked the legal team if the EPL license was compatible with the Apache license and AFAIR the
answer was positive.

We hadn't been aware that it was only the case for the binary form only (I'm not sure it was
the case or there was such a distinction back then).

In any case, looking at the link you provided and this other page [],
it's now clear that including source file under the EPL license is not allowed.

I'm going to open another JIRA for a review and removal of any EPL source file from Apache
Directory Studio repository.

Thanks for letting us know.

> The fullscreen plugin was copied source-for-source from
under the Eclipse Public License.
> In revision 1229632 the source code was modified to indicate that it was released under
the Apache License. This is not the case.
> Please remove the Apache License from these files as I do not give permission for these
to be relicensed without prior consultation.
> The PLUGIN_ID in the Activator also needs to be renamed if you are doing this wholesale
to avoid problems where the real plugin may be available.
