Subject [jira] [Updated] (THRIFT-4487) gettimeofday: windows implementation not quoting source, applying license to foreign code
Date Sat, 12 Jan 2019 12:32:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/THRIFT-4487?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Marcus Müller updated THRIFT-4487:
----------------------------------
    Issue Type: Bug  (was: Question)

I'm sorry, but you've changed the issue type from "Bug" to "Question", and I had to change
that back.
There's no question in here. To make this clear: This is code that clearly doesn't belong
to Apache, and that clearly wasn't licensed by the original author under the license that
it is now being distributed under.

 

That's a breach of license and leaves open many question. Re-licensing someone else's code
isn't a "Question", it's a code bug.

> uses Code that is at least from March 2007; unless the original author of GetTimeOfDay.cpp
is the same who submitted the code to [http://www.openasthra.com/wp-content/uploads/gettimeofday.c] (link
dead, web archive link: [https://web.archive.org/web/20070328134250/http://www.openasthra.com/wp-content/uploads/gettimeofday.c] ),
very likely isn't code that can be assigned to the Apache foundation.
> I can't really tell when this file has been added.
