Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (RIVER-32) Jini Technology Lookup, Discovery and Join Kit contribution from Sun Microsystems
Date Fri, 17 Sep 2010 00:07:17 GMT
Does someone have a copy of the test kit?  Is it under an apache license?

We've got a copy of the Jini Patent Covenant, if the license is Apache 
2, there seem to be enough original developers around to verify the 
code's provenance (the original authors need to confirm the source code 
and its license, they don't have to donate it, grant it etc).

This should be sufficient to rescue it.

It doesn't look like we're able to use the surrogate source 
unfortunately, due to provenance.  We've got a copy on Jira for 
history's sake.

As a minimum we should attempt to preserve the code (even if the license 
isn't compatible), if its still available, leaving the door open to 
resuscitate it later.  Who knows Oracle could have a change of heart.
