Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "IsisProposal" by DanHaywood

Dear Wiki user,

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

The "IsisProposal" page has been changed by DanHaywood.
The comment on this change is: Clarification on IP submission plan for existing committers
and for patches received..


  == Source and IP Submission Plan ==
  As mentioned earlier, the NO framework is ASLv2 but copyright belongs to Naked Objects Group
Ltd.  NOGL is happy to donate the relevant rights to Apache, while Dan is also happy to donate
the various sister projects that he has written.   Having a single legal entity - ASF - owning
the relevant rights to all this software would be very desirable.
+ All the existing committers to the Naked Objects framework have formally granted their contributions
as the copyright of NOGL; there have been no committers to Dan's sister projects other than
Dan himself.
+ According to our checks in email archives and the SVN log, there have in addition been patches
to the Naked Objects framework from 4 other individuals in the community.  None of these patches
is significant, and we don't believe that any infringe any other existing IP, and were provided
in good faith to be the copyright of NOGL.  That said, we have e-mailed these individuals
in order to verify this.  Worst comes to worst, we can back out their patches (based on svn
diffs) and reimplement the patches as required.  These steps will be performed during incubation,
before our first release.
  == External Dependencies ==
  Other than the Apache dependencies, all other open source projects used all have ASL v2.0
(eg Google Collections, cglib, objenesis),  BSD (eg Hamcrest, ASM), MPL (eg javassist) or
similarly permissive licenses.  We do also have a soft dependency on an LGPL-licensed library
(Hibernate) but during migration would look to migrate to the Apache equivalent (OpenJPA).
