Subject RE: [VOTE] [FINERACT] 0.1.0.incubating for release
Date Thu, 14 Apr 2016 07:49:21 GMT
Hi Justin,

Thanks for the feedback.
Licensing is quite confusing and your inputs are appreciated.
Since we are intending to make source only release and not include any jar
or compiled binaries.
Does this qualify only as dependency?
In such case, we wouldn't have anything other than apache text in these
files isnt't it?
We cannot even depend on cat-x licensed libraries?

Hey Justin,

thanks for the feedback. ; o)

Sorry if this call was confusing, but yes it is a call for a vote.

We know about the issue with GPL (Hibernate Entity Manager), and started a
discussion thread a while ago, asking for some guidance. It was not really
clear to us, if we really need to change it, given we release source only
and only use Hibernate at runtime for our integration tests. Your comment is
pretty clear about that now.

In addition we thought it is fine to call for a vote and sort out this issue
with upcoming releases throughout incubation, but maybe we are wrong here.
