Subject [jira] [Commented] (ZEST-191) Remove org.json java library
Date Sun, 06 Nov 2016 03:01:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZEST-191?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15641006#comment-15641006

Niclas Hedhman commented on ZEST-191:

I found the reason; https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/9627a9278d263378a2045d4bffccb6e83b9f01bb783c6dd6fa325faf@%3Clegal-discuss.apache.org%3E

It is because of the "Good vs Evil" clause, which everyone except lawyers agree is a joke,
and that there are consequences in downstream companies refusing to use it... Probably because
they are not sure if they are doing Good or Evil, I presume.
