Subject Inclusion of MySQL in roller-mysql-database plugin
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2008 14:40:22 GMT
I created a Jira to handle licensing issues involving the inclusion of  
MySQL in the roller-mysql-database plugin. See

I've insured that we will no longer build the roller-mysql-database  
plugin in our source code. However, there are multiple ways of  
handling this problem. Would like to hear opinions from the project.  
Ultimately, it's the PMC's responsibility to oversee the licensing of  
our distributions and to oversee the way we handle dependencies on  
artifacts that are covered by excluded licenses.

The ASF Licensing Policy (currently it's a draft policy, but I think  
we should be following the guidelines documented there) are located  
here --

Discussion of how to handle Prohibited Works is here --

Would be good for the project (in particular PMC) members to be  
familiar with these issues. Would like to hear how we think we should  
address this issue. As long as I feel the PMC is providing appropriate  
oversight, I'm happy with what ever decision we reach.
