Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache DataFu 1.3.3 release RC0
Date Thu, 18 Jan 2018 19:28:15 GMT
Justin, regrading the bootstrap and glyphicons licensing points you raised,
there was a github discussion in 2012 [1] [3] that led to the licensing
text in [2] about bootstrap's usage of glyphicons.  This discussion
predates the release of 3.0.3, which we are using.  So you're right that
glyphicons should be considered apache-2.0 licensed because we are using it
from the bootstrap distribution.  I will be updating [4] our LICENSE to
reflect that both bootstrap and glyphicons are apache-2.0 licensed.
