Subject ZeroMQ licensing in Apache MXNet
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2017 06:23:45 GMT
One of the items that is on the list to do before releasing Apache MXNet is
removing ZeroMQ from the codebase/dependencies.

ZeroMQ is licensed under the LGPL 3.0 with an exception for static
compiling.

They have long been interested in relicensing to MPL 2.0, but haven't made
much progress, though they did relicense JeroMQ (Java
wrapper/implementaiton) last year.

In the last few months they've made a lot of progress towards relicensing:
https://github.com/zeromq/libzmq/tree/master/RELICENSE

I'd like to ask on legal-discuss@ for an exception (one year?) to continue
using ZeroMQ, with prominent documentation, in MXNet given the trend
towards MPL 2.0.

Any concerns before I do so?

Thanks,

Hen
