Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Daffodil (incubating) 2.1.0-rc3
Date Fri, 11 May 2018 10:19:17 GMT
Sorry, this situation is a little confusing. The two files were
originally developed by Mitre under the very restrictive Cat-X license.
We requested that those files be open sourced for inclusion in the
Daffodil test suite and the files went through Mitre's process for
approval. None of us really understood the importance of licenses at the
time, but the intention was that that files would be licensed the same
as the rest of Daffodil--the University of Illinois/NCSA license, which
is Cat-A.

But due all or our inexperience with open source and licensing, changing
the license header never happened. So the files were intended to be
UoI/NCSA, but were mislabeled as Cat-X. Regardless if it's UoI/NCSA or
Cat-X, we would still need an SGA from Mitre to relicense to Apache v2,
which is more work than it's worth for these two files, so we planned to
just remove them for the next release.

Semi-related, this same mistake happened to a lot of DFDL schemas that
Mitre created and and subsequently open sourced and put on github
(unrelated to ASF) [1][2][3]. We're in talks to get them to fix those as
well.

I would also vote a -1 since we cannot release with clear Cat-X contents (we can release with
Cat-X dependencies, but the contents can't be Cat-X).
