Subject Re: Legal advise on including Visual C++ Redistributable package into ODBC installer
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2018 10:21:21 GMT
Hi Igor,

I'm not sure if someone in the community can know an answer to this
question.

I can share a page with resolved legal questions here:
https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-b

But I think it may require confirmation from Apache Legal
http://www.apache.org/legal/
https://issues.apache.org/jira/projects/LEGAL/summary
http://www.apache.org/foundation/mailinglists.html#foundation-legal

Sincerely,
Dmitriy Pavlov
