Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-44) What category is this license?
Date Fri, 17 Jul 2009 06:08:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-44?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12732354#action_12732354

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-44:

Alternative direction on this. The objectionable text is:

"You acknowledge that Software is not designed,licensed or intended for
use  in the  design,  construction, operation  or  maintenance of  any
nuclear facility. "

_that_ Software is the msv text. Is this really a field of use condition, or is it acceptance
of a no-liability statement?

Apache are happy to acknowledge that msv was not written for a nuclear facility, and we don't
see any reason why our users - even the nuclear facilities, would be concerned about such

I'm thinking this can actually be category A if no one objects to how I'm reading that text.

if source derived from this can be incorporated.
> In fact, I'd like to know if I can publish maven artifacts derived, wholesale, from this,
since the author hasn't published in nearly 4 years.
