Subject Re: [Proposal] EIK (Eclipse Integration for Karaf) as a new Karaf sub-project
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2011 06:16:19 GMT
Hi Glen,

I reviewed the project in order to prepare the IP Clearance. There is 
blocker, only Eclipse license dependency (which is Category B, not 
Category X).
I will take care of the IP clearance and licensing review during the 
project promotion to Apache.

Regards
JB
