Sounds like you should sign off on the first item in the Copyright
section of http://incubator.apache.org/projects/amber.html as "n/a".


can anyone update this page?

No code was relicensed to the ASF when Amber was created. Instead it
was a fork of Uni of Newcastle code and that copyright remains on the
code.

Hi Henri,

thanks for taking care of this.

IANAL but technically yes I think that the OAuth 2.0 part of Amber can be considered as a
fork.

Before to perform the first release we followed what has been suggested in LEGAL-134.
Did we miss something? Should we do something more or we can assume this legal issue is over?

Thanks and regards

Antonio

Hi Antonio,

This is about making sure that all software being contributed to
Apache is covered by CLAs (continuous contribution) or the software
license grant (single contribution). Legally it would also be fine to
fork software under a Category A license, though it's frowned upon
(ie: the status checkbox doesn't offer it as an option).

By the look of LEGAL-134, it sounds like Amber started as a fork of
University of Newcastle code?

Hi Henri,

Amber wise we tracked this in [0].
Now I am not sure if we can also tick the box.

The following projects haven't signed off on the copyright checklist item:

2009-02-09  kato
2009-02-13  stonehenge
2009-05-13  socialsite
2010-05-19  amber
2010-09-05  nuvem
2010-11-12  kitty
2010-11-24  stanbol
2011-06-13  openofficeorg

Said checklist item is:

"Check and make sure that the papers that transfer rights to the ASF
been received. It is only necessary to transfer rights for the
package, the core code, and any new code produced by the project. "

How long do we host software without explicitly stating we have these rights?

Personally I think 1 year is more than enough, even for OpenOffice.

Note that this list comes from
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/public/trunk/content/projects
