Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Fineract 0.1.2 (incubating)
Date Wed, 25 May 2016 18:57:05 GMT
Hello,

This thread appears to mix LGPL (Hibernate) and GPL (nothing used in
Fineract AFAIK). They are not quite the same of course. It seems like even
LGPL really is a problem then?

Just thought it would be worth to be precise here.

Regards,
Michael
