Subject Re: Droid IP clearance?
Date Thu, 18 Feb 2010 09:45:22 GMT
Hi,

To bring some light into this, you might want to re-read a thread from
labs@labs.a.o from Aug 2008, starting here
  http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/labs-labs/200808.mbox/ajax/%3c1219838773.6347.33.camel@thorsten-desktop%3e
taking off Sept 6th, here
  http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/labs-labs/200809.mbox/ajax/%3cA7CE0A69-851F-4B63-B384-1E8C0BDF51FF@apache.org%3e

For convinience, the markmail URL of the full thread is
  http://markmail.org/thread/vweavaitkmvz3ihm

To be fair, Droids wasn't "wholly developed" at Labs from scratch, the
initial import came with r509422.

My personal take on this is that there are no IP clearance issues.
Thorsten imported his own code base (right?), it's there to be seen
for everyone in svn and all subsequent dev was done on ASF territory.
I trust Thorsten on this initial large commit as much as I trust him
on any other follow-up small commit.

However, if Thorsten does not own all IP on this initial code, that's
another thing.

the clearance?
