Subject [Request For Comment] Third-Party Licensing Policy
Date Tue, 14 Mar 2006 01:49:40 GMT
See http://people.apache.org/~cliffs/3party.html for a draft policy  
regarding the use of third-party works in Apache products and their  
various licenses.  The policy includes license criteria, lists of  
specifically authorized and excluded licenses, a license labeling  
policy, options for works under excluded licenses, and a transition  
policy.

Please send any comments, concerns, feedback, and flames to this  
list, unless you have a special need to keep your comments private  
(since this list has a publicly accessible archive).

Although this is an internal policy directed at Apache committers and  
PMC members, it impacts how Apache products will be licensed, which  
Apache users obviously have an interest in.  Therefore, I'm also  
interested in any feedback from a user's point of view.

Thanks,

Cliff Schmidt
