Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-23) APR contains GPL-licensed libtool
Date Mon, 16 Jun 2008 00:57:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-23?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12605175#action_12605175

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-23:

If I understand this correctly:

 * libtool is licensed under GPLv2
 * It is not in APR distribution, or APR's svn
 * It is used to build the APR distribution

What part of libtool itself ends up in the final distribution?

>            Reporter: Joe Orton
> The release tarballs produced by the APR project contain code licensed under the GPLv2,
since libtool is used.
> The wording at http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html:
> "Works under the following licenses may be included within Apache products:"
> implies this is not acceptable.
