Subject [Incubator Wiki] Trivial Update of "April2009" by GregBrown
Date Wed, 08 Apr 2009 13:00:16 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by GregBrown:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/April2009

The comment on the change is:
Removed comments re: copyright notice in forked code.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   * Noel Grandin was added as a new committer on 3/29.
  
   * The codebase was forked into the "WTKX" project at Google Code: http://code.google.com/p/wtkx/.
We didn't get a clear answer from the developer as to why he chose to fork rather than collaborate.
From what we can gather, he seems to want to do Pivot "his own way". 
- 
-  There is one potential issue with the fork. The only change we have seen to the headers
is that the developer added his own name to the copyright. To us, this doesn't seem like a
"prominent notice of change" as defined by the Apache license. A message was sent to legal-discuss
on 3/30/2009 asking for guidance, but we have not yet received a response. 
  
   * The Pivot PPMC is currently voting on a proposed 1.1 release. Work has begun on a 1.1.1
maintenance release and 1.2 feature release.
