Subject RE: licensing question
Date Thu, 04 Oct 2012 16:39:18 GMT
Hi Jorn,
If we trained a model and included it as a resource within the ASF repo, just wanted to confirm
if that's acceptable in ASF even though it's in a binary format?
Were there any issues for openNLP with including trained models?

Thanks,
Pei
