Subject Re: log4g... IBM O.S license vs Apache license.
Date Wed, 19 Jan 2000 18:49:59 GMT

Hmmm...are you suggesting that IBM change the license (to, say, the ASF 1.1
license), or are you asking for an interpretation of the current IBM Public
License?   I can help with both, just let me know what you're thinking

I believe the two licenses are compatible. Log4J is distributed under
the IBM Public Source License 1.0, so, I see no problems in that.
But I must admit it would be better to have them both under the same.
Maybe we can get an idea from some IBM officials... Mike?
