Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3816) roller-mysql-database has mysql dependency
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2008 08:03:08 GMT


David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-3816:

I'm not sure why we would change the groupId.

Rather than requiring modifying the pom to build I think it would be OK to require using a
profile named something like "build-gpl-plugin" and clearly stating the licensing consequences
in the NOTICE file.

> The roller-mysql-database plugin has a hard dependency on MySQL. We have to remove this
for licensing reasons. See explanation below.
> I plan on disabling the building of the roller-mysql-database plugin as well as removing
the mysql dependency. We'll need to reach a decision on how we want to handle this long term.
