Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-34729) IP issues in TLF repo
Date Sun, 22 Feb 2015 07:56:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-34729?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14332073#comment-14332073
] 

Alex Harui commented on FLEX-34729:
-----------------------------------

I don't agree that the public domain stuff is handled correctly.  The link you posted isn't
even close to the end of the thread.  I didn't think we'd achieved consensus on what to do.

It turned out that Adobe versions of these files are in SourceForge and thus available to
the public and thus Adobe is in a similar situation.  So I asked Adobe Legal about what to
do about the Adobe versions.  They care enough that they have asked me to modify the Adobe
versions although they say it isn't urgent, and the modification they approved is the adding
of a comment but retaining the Adobe header.  They did not accept the suggestion of removing
the Adobe header.  They did not say I could just let it go without doing anything.  So, I
will soon get around to making those changes to the Adobe versions, and then it makes sense
to me to make similar changes to the Apache versions (Apache header and the same comment that
I will write for the Adobe version.  I won't use Justin's text so that the comment is copyright
Adobe) so that the Apache version looks like it would if Adobe had donated a correctly attributed
version of that file.

Do others agree with this plan?

Then next week, I'll hit up Adobe Legal about what to do about the not-so-public domain text
and report back on their decision.
