Subject A Letter from JBoss's lawyers
Date Mon, 10 Nov 2003 14:39:45 GMT
> The ASF rec'd a letter from JBoss's lawyers regarding Geronimo
> and the similarity of code between Geronimo and JBoss. They
> cite a few "examples" but mention that:
>     1. That it strongly appears that code was
>        simply copied over
>     2. That we are violating (L)GPL.
> I would like to place a copy of the letter on the Geronimo
> site, but need some direction on doing that... Except
> for HTTP releases and some minor things, I don't touch the
> website build system.
> In any case, this a CALL for ALL Geronimo developers
> to ensure that any code is not copied from JBoss.
> Recall, also, that if someone is the original
> author of the code and donated that code to JBoss,
> they can *still* donate the original code to the
> ASF (unless they signed some sort of exclusivity
> agreement). Original authors maintain ownership.
> I cannot attach the PDF due to quota limits
