Subject [jira] Resolved: (LEGAL-58) Can Apache projects distribute build files that are LGPL?
Date Mon, 07 Dec 2009 12:33:18 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-58?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Sam Ruby resolved LEGAL-58.
---------------------------

    Resolution: Fixed
      Assignee: Sam Ruby

I've updated resolved.html with my take.  In the process, I noted that Autotools wasn't listed,
and I included it.  Let me know if this causes any concerns.

> The Thrift project in the incubator has a few LGPL build files they'd like to distribute
> in their upcoming release:
> http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/thrift/trunk/lib/rb/setup.rb
> http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/thrift/trunk/lib/ocaml/OCamlMakefile (trust
me it's LGPL).
> Any reason why they can't do it?  I don't see how this would harm any
> of our downstream users (closed source distributors don't need to distribute
> the build files, just the artifacts they create, which aren't touched by LGPL
> by any rational legal theory).
