Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-49) Status of LGPL v3 as an ASF project dependency
Date Fri, 08 May 2009 03:51:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-49?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12707224#action_12707224
] 

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-49:
------------------------------------

It'll obviously never be Category A. So the question is whether our concerns with LGPL are
resolved in version 3 to allow us to consider it category B. I'll bring it up on list as there's
been discussion but not a categorical answer (pardon my pun :) ).

> The Third-Party Licensing Policy at http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html mentions
LGPL v2.1 but does not mention LGPL v3
