Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-3374) Our jruby jar has *GPL jars in it; fix
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 00:16:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-3374?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12985470#action_12985470

Charles Oliver Nutter commented on HBASE-3374:
----------------------------------------------

My reading of Apache's position on CDDL (from http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html#criteriaandcategories)
is that CDDL would be acceptable if the software/library in question is distributed only in
binary form and an appropriate note of the so-licensed software is made in the LICENSE file.
This appears to puts CDDL in the same category as CPL, under which license JRuby itself is
allowed for inclusion in HBase.

So I think CDDL would be acceptable...correct?

> The latest JRuby's complete jar bundles *GPL jars (JNA and JFFI among others).   It looks
like the functionality we depend on -- the shell in particular -- makes use of these dirty
jars so they are hard to strip.  They came in because we (I!) just updated our JRuby w/o checking
in on what updates contained.  JRuby has been doing this for a while now (1.1.x added the
first LGPL).  You have to go all the ways back to the original HBase checkin, HBASE-487, of
JRuby -- 1.0.3 -- to get a JRuby w/o *GPL jars.
> Plan is to try and revert our JRuby all the ways down to 1.0.3 before shipping 0.90.0.
 Thats what this issue is about.
> We should also look into moving off JRuby in the medium to long-term.  Its kinda awkward
sticking on an old version that is no longer supported.  I'll open an issue for that.
