Subject Re: HAWQ licensing questions
Date Tue, 20 Sep 2016 21:09:54 GMT
FYI: I have created the following issue:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAWQ-1065

A PR has been created and is available for review:
https://github.com/apache/incubator-hawq/pull/922

This completes the outstanding issues related to the Perl Artistic License.

Regards,
-=e
