Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-14964) AliyunOSS: backport Aliyun OSS module to branch-2
Date Fri, 01 Dec 2017 18:11:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-14964?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16274715#comment-16274715

Chris Douglas commented on HADOOP-14964:

The problem is that {{json-lib}} was likely derived from the JSON library that has the non-free
license. So it is incorrectly licensed as an Apache-licensed (ALv2) dependency. Since the
JSON license was reclassified by ASF legal, no project can release code that takes it as a
dependency. I filed LEGAL-349 to get an official opinion, but most likely the Aliyun SDK will
need to shed this dependency before we can release it from any branch, including 3.0.0.

Douglas Crockford has been told that the joke in his license is harming open source developers,
and he doesn't care. Can you look into replacing {{json-lib}} with another library?
