Subject License question
Date Thu, 30 Apr 2009 22:36:15 GMT
The pig project (http://hadoop.apache.org/pig/) is considering using  
the cup parser.  It has its own license.  I wanted to check that this  
license is compatible with Apache's license.  The text of the license  
follows.  You can also view it at http://www2.cs.tum.edu/projects/cup/

Thanks for your help in this.

Alan Gates.
Pig committer.
