Subject [GitHub] spark pull request: SPARK-5665 [DOCS] Update netlib-java documenta...
Date Sat, 07 Feb 2015 20:03:43 GMT
Github user fommil commented on the pull request:
    @srowen I've had a big discussion with Apache about this and it went nowhere, even though
IP laywers stepped up to back up my stance. I firmly believe the Apache stance on LGPL is
FUD and driven entirely by politics. In any case, my point in this particular case is that
I find it truly ridiculous that Apache cared more about the LGPL than the genuine threat of
distributing proprietary binaries with Spark... which somebody might do inadvertently because
they "just copied all the libs that were needed for it to run on my machine"
    @mengxr I'm teasing re: advertising :stuck_out_tongue: I'll update to have only one link,
but it'll be a real PITA for me to update the talk slides to point to the video (the org-mode/revealjs
format doesn't allow arbitrary fields in the title slide). I should probably do it anyway.
    Re: gfortran... **no** there is absolutely no requirement for a system BLAS/LAPACK to
depend on the GNU Fortran library. This is because JBLAS uses GFORTRAN-compiled binaries.
I have Intel MKL and it definitely doesn't require gfortran to operate.
