Subject [jira] [Created] (HAWQ-976) Incompatible BSD 4-clause licenses
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2016 00:12:20 GMT
Ed Espino created HAWQ-976:

             Summary: Incompatible BSD 4-clause licenses
                 Key: HAWQ-976
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAWQ-976
             Project: Apache HAWQ
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Ed Espino
            Assignee: Lei Chang

The following files were highlighted as being incompatible BSD 4-clause license (http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-a)
by PMC member Justin Mclean.  He also provided a link (ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/pub/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change)
indicating the advertising clause has since been rescinded and this might not be an issue.
This needs to be validated.

* src/backend/port/dynloader/freebsd.c
* src/backend/port/dynloader/netbsd.c
* src/backend/port/dynloader/openbsd.c
* src/bin/gpfdist/src/gpfdist/glob.c
* src/bin/gpfdist/src/gpfdist/include/glob.h
* src/include/port/win32_msvc/glob.h
* src/port/glob.c

The third clause should be replaced as follows:


 * 3. All advertising materials mentioning features or use of this software
 *    must display the following acknowledgement:
 *      This product includes software developed by the University of
 *      California, Berkeley and its contributors.

 * 3. <BSD Advertising Clause omitted per the July 22, 1999 licensing change 
 *		ftp://ftp.cs.berkeley.edu/pub/4bsd/README.Impt.License.Change> 

Here is an external example of it's use: http://code.metager.de/source/xref/busybox/libbb/progress.c
