Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-65) storing a patch to an EPL library in the svn repository
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2009 17:33:39 GMT

Craig Russell commented on LEGAL-65:
------------------------------------

I see no legal or social barriers to the project supplying a patch file to a third party component
that is then applied by a user.

> The Maven project would like to add a performance testing project that utilises an EPL
library, which is possible under the current policies. However, it is required to apply a
patch to the EPL library to use in this project. It is not intended to distribute the patched
EPL binary, or the EPL sources themselves, but to instruct the user of the project to check
out the EPL sources themselves and apply the supplied patch. 
> Is it acceptable to include the patch file in the Apache svn repository?
