Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-17) Geronimo have asked about the Sun code in the public domain concurrent library
Date Wed, 18 Jun 2008 19:41:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-17?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12606059#action_12606059

Sam Ruby commented on LEGAL-17:

"non-transferrable license to ... sublicense the right to use, reproduce and distribute the
Java Software and Doug Lea's derivative works as the part of larger works through multiple
tiers of sublicensees provided that the following conditions are met..."

I read that as these files can't be used separately from Doug's work, as such I would feel
comfortable with this being "included in binary form within an Apache product if the inclusion
is appropriately labeled", much like we recommend for "Weak Copyleft" Licenses.
