Subject [jira] [Commented] (THRIFT-2426) clarify IP rights and contributions from fbthrift
Date Sun, 27 Jan 2019 15:24:00 GMT


Randy Abernethy commented on THRIFT-2426:

The issue is that the Apache 2 lic  requires preservation of copyright. Code in the Apache
repo can not have copyright Facebook 2014 or whatever (which AFAIK all of the fbthrift code
is). If fb staff contribute it w/o copyright then it's ok. If they blanket grant the fbthrift
code to apache then anyone contributing it would be ok. As it is, it is not ok.

What can you do?
 # Create a patch and get them to contrib it
 # Get them to provide blanket auth for their entire fbthrift repo to be contributed

1 has been done but is a headache for them (and us really). 2 has been rejected by them in
the past but if you can get it done that would be great.
