Subject RE: my next (tiny) steps - clean up regarding stuff which is not conform to the Apache license
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2011 19:40:52 GMT
If you mean ODMA.h, I don't believe there is any dependency on it and you should just get rid
of it.

If you need to deal with it as third-party code, I can get you a version with a BSD-variant
license that applies, although the header itself has not been touched.  AIIM approved the
license some time ago.

I think the simple solution is to remove the ODMA.h header and delete the dialog about offering
ODMA selections on Open ... first or not (if that is even present in current
builds).  Post the patch on removing ODMA.h and I'll be happy to commit it [;<).

In fact, ODMA.h is not a file anyone would use to bind to the ODMA32.dll, because then ODMA32.dll
is required to be on the system.  The whole idea is that ODMA32.dll and the present of a DMS
that is registered to work with is done by discovery, and these are the wrong
headers and the wrong protocol for that.  

If someone wants to figure out a decent binding for ODMA32 (there is no ODMA64 at this time)
in the future, I can help with that.  I even have better headers and sample code for going
through the discovery process.  I can even Apache License those [;<).  (Duhh.  I just realized

However, I suspect that any further efforts at DMS and Content Management systems would be
by tightening the WebDAV integration and also looking into CMIS as the most promising low-hanging
fruit for content-management integration.

I will now join the folks who are working on the clean up regarding 
non-Apache license conform stuff.

Looking at the wiki - - 
provides some low-hanging fruits for me for a start.
I will create patches for the following Apache license problems:
- UnixODBC
- dtrans/source/os2/clipb/OS2Bitmap.cxx
- A header from GNU c library

Any objections to execute these already proposed and marked as solved 

Best regards, Oliver.
