Subject 3.4_release_blocker granted: [Bug 119168] Provide matching license in install set
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2012 13:09:15 GMT
hdu@apache.org has granted  3.4_release_blocker:
Bug 119168: Provide matching license in install set
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=119168

------- Additional Comments from hdu@apache.org
Keeping the LICENSE and NOTICE files to conform to the requirements defined in
http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html#distribute-other-artifacts should be
automated, because the install set of Apache OpenOffice consists of many parts
under different licenses which makes this task non-trivial:

By default only permissively licensed stuff is included
(http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html#category-a).

Running the configure step with the --enable-category-b option allows to extend
Apache OpenOffice functionality using content provided under reciprocal
licenses (http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html#category-b).

It is also possible to extend the functionality by merely aggregating suitably
licensed content such as galleries, dictionaries, etc.
