> Clarify License implications of RabbitMQ Connector
> --------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: FLINK-5639
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-5639
>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Streaming Connectors
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.0, 1.1.4
>            Reporter: Stephan Ewen
>            Assignee: Stephan Ewen
>             Fix For: 1.3.0, 1.1.5, 1.2.1
> The RabbitMQ Connector has a Maven dependency under MPL 1.1.
> The ASF legal FAQ (https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved) classifies that as "may be
included in binary form within an Apache product if the inclusion is appropriately labeled".
> Because we neither include sources nor binaries (but only define a Maven dependency)
it is probably not relevant to Flink. But to be on the safe side for the project and users,
we should add a notice as blow to the docs and the project:
> {code}
> # License of the Rabbit MQ Connector
> Flink's RabbitMQ connector defines a Maven dependency on the
> "RabbitMQ AMQP Java Client", licensed under the
> Mozilla Public License v1.1 (MPL 1.1).
> Flink itself neither reuses source code from the "RabbitMQ AMQP Java Client"
> nor packages binaries from the "RabbitMQ AMQP Java Client".
> Users that create and publish derivative work based on Flink's
> RabbitMQ connector (thereby re-distributing the "RabbitMQ AMQP Java Client")
> must be aware that this may be subject to conditions declared
> in the Mozilla Public License v1.1 (MPL 1.1).
> {code}
