Subject [jira] Commented: (STANBOL-61) Remove LGPL library net.sourceforge.textcat from 'langid' enhancement engine
Date Wed, 09 Feb 2011 21:15:57 GMT


Fabian Christ commented on STANBOL-61:

I see that textcat version was changed to 1.0.1 but it is still a LGPL licensed lib.

Is there a chance to get textcat using another license?

Furthermore this library is used in an IKS specific version identified as 1.0.1-IKS and loaded
from It is unclear who owns the copyrights here.
> The dependency to the LGPL library should be removed. If this is not possible, the whole
engine should be removed from Stanbol code base. Perhaps it is possible to provide such an
engine through the IKS project and keep maintenance of this engine there. From Stanbol point
of view this engine is optional.
