Subject Re: Defining Hadoop Compatibility -revisiting-

While IANAL...

As long as any implementation follows Apache's license regarding derivative works, it's fair
game.  (this is my understanding YMMV)

The APL is very liberal in what one can do with a derivative work...

Surely Apache has some lawyers who can summarize what is allowable when talking about a derivative
work and what is not?

Note these are my opinions only and do not reflect the opinions of anyone else. Any resemblance
to a coherent thought is pure coincidence.....

   (b) wider choice of Hadoop implementations by freeing them from vendor


They won't be hadoop implementations, they will be "something that is
compatible with the Apache Hadoop API as defined in v 0.x of the Hadoop
compatibility kit". Furthermore, there's the issue of any google patents
-while google have given Hadoop permission to them, that may not apply
to other things that implement compatible APIs.
