Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-2307) Include appropriate license for the Sun j2ee schema files that are redistributed
Date Fri, 18 Aug 2006 02:10:15 GMT
     [ ]

Matt Hogstrom updated GERONIMO-2307:

If we need to create these then create these we must.

Here are the files that I know of in our development tree that need to have substitutes created.
 Not sure if they exist or not.  I took the files and found their location in the source tree
to make finding them easier.

I've modified the description with the files and using the nice markup we have I placed them
in the description of this JIRA.

Volunteers welcome :)

1.1.1 and other releases are stalled until we get this resolved.  

Geir, how does this impact previous releases of Geronimo?

> Geronimo redistributes the Sun J2EE schema files for deployment descriptors etc but doesn't
appear to include anything in the global license file about it.  
> The following two statement in the copyright text in the schema files  (e.g.
) concern me:
> * This document and the technology which it describes are distributed under licenses
restricting their use, copying, distribution, and decompilation. 
> * No part of this document may be reproduced in any form by any means without prior written
authorization of Sun and its licensors, if any.
> Considering the first point, we need to determine what license the files are under. 
Seems we need written authorization for the second point.
> The concern regarding copyrights for the schemas came to mind whilst testing the geronimo
eclipse plugin, eclipse prompted me to acknowledge the Sun license at
when caching the j2ee schema files (e.g. ).
> I can't find anything to confirm that the berkeley license displayed by eclipse is the
correct license for the schemas.
