Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4902) need license file modifications for imported plexus code in osgi sandbox modules/geronimo-plugin
Date Tue, 06 Oct 2009 03:49:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4902?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12762494#action_12762494

Kevan Miller commented on GERONIMO-4902:
----------------------------------------

Hmm. I think this is going to be a problem... How much code? Likely that we're going to have
to find a different way of fixing this problem...

Plexus is licensed under CPL 1.0 (http://plexus.sourceforge.net/license.shtml). CPL 1.0 is
classified as a Category B license by Apache (http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-b
). This means that we can only include CPL binaries, not CPL source. Unless we can get Plexus
to relicense or if this code meets the Category B exception clause (which I doubt it will),
then afraid we're going to need to remove the Plexus code...

> In order to avoid giant problems with plexus invasiveness I copied the plexus code we
need to build archives into geronimo-plugin and modified it to not pull in all of the plexus
infrastructure.  We need to find a way to eliminate this code or fix the legal files.
> rev 821961, https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/sandbox/djencks/osgi/framework
> Kevan, if you don't want to do this unassign it -- I thought you might be the best at
figuring out what we need.
