Subject AFL code in an ASF project
Date Tue, 22 Nov 2005 20:09:36 GMT
A question came up about whether or not it would be OK to include a 
non-ASF project released under the Artistic Free License (AFL) as part of 
an ASF release. One of the differences I'm aware of between the two 
licenses is that the AFL provides a guarantee of provenance while the AL 
does not. What I don't understand is what effect this would have when an 
AFL project is embedded in an AL project.

So, bottom line: Is it OK to include an AFL project as part of an ASF 
distributable (i.e. release)?
