The "MetaModelProposal" page has been changed by Henry Saputra:

  === Reliance on Salaried Developers ===
  
- Most of the developers are paid by their employer to contribute to this project, but given
the dependence on MetaModel from both commercial and open source projects, the project would
continue without issue if no salaried developers contributed to the project.

  === Relationship with Other Apache Products ===

by the 2.x and 3.x versions). The code is used in mission critical systems and is considered
very stable and high performing.

- The source includes a fork of the xBaseJ project’s code, which will be removed upon incubation.
This code was originally GPL licensed, but granted with a special license to MetaModel to
be forked and relicensed using the current LPGL license of MetaModel. Removal of the xBaseJ
code will effectively mean that the Apache variant of MetaModel will not have support for
dBase database files. We imagine that the dBase module could live on as a separate pluggable
module under the LGPL license, outside of Apache.
