Subject [jira] [Commented] (ANY23-37) LGPL'ed components cannot be included in distribution packages
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 10:48:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ANY23-37?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13209257#comment-13209257

Paolo Castagna commented on ANY23-37:
-------------------------------------

> fastutil is ASL
> dsiutils is LGPL 

The author of fastutil and dsiutils (i.e. Sebastiano Vigna --> http://vigna.dsi.unimi.it/)
has changed the license of fastutil to ASL when moving from version 5.1.5 to 6.0.0.
fastutil is in Maven Central, while dsiutils is not.
Maybe, dsiutils could/should follow and change to ASL as well as being published/released
in the Maven Central repository.
Asking Sebastiano directly is certainly an option on the table.

> While reviewing dependencies license, I noticed that the it.unimi.dsi:dsiutils:2.0.1
transitive dependency is released under LGPL release, so it cannot be included in the non-maven
binary archives.
> A first turnaround solution could be avoiding it is included and reporting it in the
README.
