Subject FW: [DISCUSS] Combining Apache license header & antlr license (Was:[VOTE] Publish Yoko M1 release)
Date Thu, 19 Oct 2006 15:09:04 GMT

Hi robert,

Just noticed that we have the package headers in the idl.g which should
be apache licensed & the rest of the grammar is under antlr license...
What's the general rule that is followed in this case?

Thanks for the review...

About the idl.g, I don't think we need a license header as it is through
the antlr's license (which we have in the source distribution). Should I
include antlr's license in the idl.g? We have it in the
trunk/etc/third_party_licenses/antlr-bsd-license.txt.

I will look at the license files in the binary distribution & put the
DISCLIAMER.txt in the root directory.

much better now just one major issue:

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/yoko/tags/yoko-1.0-incubating-
M1/tools/src/main/java/org/apache/yoko/tools/processors/idl/idl.g
lacks a license header.
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/yoko/tags/yoko-1.0-incubating-
M1/tools/NOTICE
includes:

   "IDL parser and the IDL grammar file used by the idltowsdl tool
   are provided by the antlr package, which is available under a BSD
license.
   The original software is available from
    http://www.antlr.org/download.html"

but the file above has a hand craft comment which makes me a little
worried. what's the status of this file?

also LICENSE file contains:

   "THIS PRODUCT ALSO INCLUDES THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE REDISTRIBUTED UNDER
THE

   FOLLOWING LICENSES:





   Celtix, EPL License,

   	../etc/third_party_licenses/celtix-epl-license.txt"

(and quite a few more) but the binary distribution does not contain
etc/third_party_licenses (or the licenses anywhere i can find).

some unofficial comments and hints
-------------------------------------------

IIRC security issues have been found with earlier versions of GnuPG.
if you're still using 1.2.2 consider upgrading to the latest release.

the pagination for the OMG at the bottom of the license file is a
little off to me (perhaps a tabs verses spaces issue)

the incubator disclaimer isn't obvious in the source distribution.
consider moving to NOTICE, README.txt, DISCLAIMER.txt or somewhere
obvious in the root directory.
