Subject [CONF] Apache Community > IP_Clearance

Space: Apache Community (
Page: IP_Clearance (

Added by Juergen Schmidt:
h2. IP clearance

The former code base of used several external libraries and code with incompatible
licenses that cannot be longer used in the Apache Open Office project or at least not in the
same way. A first overview of critical stuff can be found on the "[Migration|]"
page in the community wiki. This page is intended to document the ongoing work of the IP clearance
in more detail but still high-level.

The process will be redefined and improved over time and in the end we will end up with an
automated process using the Apache Release Audit Tool (RAT) to ensure that we have always
a clean code base for Apache Open Office.
