Subject [jira] [Created] (DIRSERVER-2006) Licencing for apacheds-all
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2014 08:48:34 GMT
Sebastian Oerding created DIRSERVER-2006:

             Summary: Licencing for apacheds-all
                 Key: DIRSERVER-2006
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M17
         Environment: Does not matter, component does not exist as this ticket applies to
the artifact apacheds-all
            Reporter: Sebastian Oerding

The artifacte apacheds-all artifact includes classes cpoied there from other libraries (such
as the Bouncycastle classes for parsing ASN1).

However in this case the licence of the original must be correctly applied. In the case of
the classes from Bouncycastle the solution is as follows:

- Use the ASF 2.0 licence for the apacheds-all but add a hint that the code in the package
org\bouncycastle\ (whichever contains the classes) is taken from bouncycastle and that for
this package the additional statement ... (check the Bouncycastle licence to get the statement,
Bouncycastle licence is derived from MIT Licence) is part of the licence. Furthermore state
that this additional part must be preserved in case of any further sublicencing of this code
in the org.bouncycastle package additionally to the requirements defined by the ASF licence.
