Subject Re: Metron-2340 - Geo Database
Date Thu, 21 May 2020 01:55:25 GMT
 I “believe” that those files apply to the database that they ship, looking
at the perl It doesn’t seem to mention any claim or restrictions on the
databases produced.

I don’t think you are talking about distributing the perl module, but
rather making it a build dependency,  Is that right?

Good morning,

I have been working on a solution for Metron-2340 (
hxxps://issues.apache.org/jira/projects/METRON/issues/METRON-2340), and
need some direction. br/> <
Using Maxmind's database writer (
hxxps://github.com/maxmind/MaxMind-DB-Writer-perl), I have been
creating the mmdb files required for the build tests to succeed. The
Perl code I was going to place in dev-utilities/build-utils with the
name generate_geoip.pl, and I noticed there are some additional files
to consider.

As an example, in GeoLite2-ASN.tar.gz there is the following:

GeoLite2-ASN_20181120/
GeoLite2-ASN_20181120/COPYRIGHT.txt
GeoLite2-ASN_20181120/LICENSE.txt
GeoLite2-ASN_20181120/GeoLite2-ASN.mmdb

I am not using the original mmdb data from Maxmind, instead generating
data using the Perl library. Are the copyright and license files
required? Is there a copyright and license document from the Apache
foundation I should be using here?

Thank you,

Tom.
