Subject Using princexml.com converter tool in ASF projects (and publishing the artifacts)
Date Tue, 13 Oct 2009 12:44:09 GMT
Hi,
  following the example (and re-using most part of the code) of Apache
Camel I've prepared a module to automatically convert Apache Felix
Karaf wiki pages into a PDF manual.

The code uses Apache Camel "maven-html-to-pdf" subproject, that in
turns uses a closed source xml->pdf converter available at
princexml.com. The license of this tool is available at [1] and copied
at the end of the email (after the signature).

A Personal license of the tools is available for free. The website
reports the following statements about this license

"We offer a free Personal license of Prince for interactive use on a
single computer. [...] However, for other uses you will need to
purchase one of the other licenses we offer. If you wish to run Prince
on a server, you need to purchase a Server license.
[...]
If this is a Personal license, PDF documents generated by the Software
include a message that identifies the Software and the license type.
Licensee shall not change or remove this message."

My questions:
1) Is it (legally) acceptable to install princexml in our build
machine, so we can generate the PDF manual as part of the build
process?
2) Is it acceptable to upload the generated PDF in our Maven
repository and consider it part of Apache Felix Karaf release?

Thanks for your suggestions,
