Subject Donating software for Apache Directory
Date Fri, 02 Jun 2006 14:33:37 GMT
Hello all,

 

I work for CA (formerly called as Computer Associates), and currently
I'm a committer on couple of apache projects in the web services area.
This is regarding donating JXplorer, a CA product, to Apache Directory
project as wished by both CA and the ApacheDS developer community.

 

JXplorer ((http://jxplorer.org/) is a GUI LDAP client developed at CA,
and has been open-sourced through SourceForge
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/jxplorer/) under a simple licence
(http://jxplorer.org/licence.html). JXplorer is now very stable and a
popular LDAP browser in the industry and is in the top 1% of Source
Forge downloads
(http://sourceforge.net/project/stats/detail.php?group_id=55394&ugn=jxpl
orer&mode=alltime&&type=prdownload). This donation is also wanted
<http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/directory-dev/200504.mbox/%3cd
aae8b00bf63b24b2d21ed1abba95b41@pegacat.com%3e>  by the ApacheDS
developer community, and supposed to be a natural supplement as client
for the Apache DS product.

 

The Software Grants section at http://www.apache.org/licenses/ indicates
that the donor needs execute a formal Software Grant agreement with the
ASF. It also mentions that, this is typically done after negotiating
approval with the ASF Incubator or one of the PMCs. For me, the Apache
Incubator policy seems to address mostly the new projects, but not
donating code to existing projects. I might be wrong here. Currently CA
does not have an ASF member for nominating an incubation candidate and
I'm not sure how to go about it without having a PMC member at CA. The
other option seems to be getting approval from the PMC for the ApacheDS
project. I couldn't get the contact for PMC for the ApacheDS project. I
suppose it is Alex.

 

I'm looking for help in suggesting a process to get this software grant
done.

 

Thanks a lot,

Venkat
