Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-5) Move 3rd party draft from ~ to website
Date Fri, 13 Jun 2008 09:58:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-5?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12604785#action_12604785

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-5:

I don't think we need that - we need to consider whether an acronym is better known than its
expansion and if not then expand it. For example, expanding MIT would be a mistake, same for
BSD or W3C. 

Others I'm on the fence regarding - GPL, MPL, EPL etc. If there is a link to the license and
it's a common one then I think usage of the acronym is better.
