Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-1034) SKOS Plugin - Update 20070802
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2007 22:12:53 GMT


Ross Gardler commented on FOR-1034:

This is great. I really like the way you are pulling remote glossary content from the W3C
site - a superb demonstration of (some of) what Forrest is about - pulling content from multiple

However, I do have a concerna about this. What is the licence status of this remote data?
Since it is W3C data I imagine we can reuse it, and since it is not going into our SVN things
are simplified. However, surely we need to credit the W3C copyright materials. Especially
since the page copyright notice says "Copyright © 2004-2007 The Apache Software Foundation."

Looking at the RDF sources you are using there does not appear to be any copyright notices
within, so I'm not sure what the copyiright status for this material is. Do you know? If not
we need to discuss this, first on the Forrest dev list (who will see this message), then,
if we still don't know the answer we can go to the Apache legal-discuss list.

I've applied these patches on my local machine but have not committed them since we need to
consider the above legal issue (which I do not see as a blocker, we just need to understand
the implications of this).

(there are other problems here, but I'll put them in subsequent comments to keep the mailing
list messages on topic)
