Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-3816) roller-mysql-database has mysql dependency

roller-mysql-database has mysql dependency

                 Key: GERONIMO-3816
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: Plugins
            Reporter: Kevan Miller

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.

Here's more licensing info...

             MySQL is Licensed under the GPL license:

             MySQL is also available under a FLOSS exception:
             The FLOSS exception only be applied to MySQL when it is
             used under an OSI-approved license.

            Neither license is deemed suitable by the Apache Software
            Foundation in ASF distributions.
