Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-54) Resolved.html should discuss optional dependencies.
Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 21:03:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-54?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12792898#action_12792898

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-54:
------------------------------------

I don't think the Q&A here is right. We're not giving blanket approval of "LGPL licensed
works in optional features that are not enabled by default", rather that's a criteria the
Legal Affairs PMC considers on items. 

We have a long history of not being able to be happy with the abstract statement even if we
are happy with individual cases.

> I recommend something like the following.
> Change the answer to "Which licenses may NOT be included within Apache products?"
> Apache products may not require components under the following licenses. 
> ...
> Q. Can Apache projects use components under prohibited licenses for optional use?
> Apache project must not distribute works under a prohibited licensed or require a work
under a prohibited license
> to perform functions essential to normaloperation. However, projects may use LGPL licensed
works in optional
> features that are not enabled by default. 
> Apache projects may also use components under a prohibited license as part of the project's
build process or on their web site where they meet all the legal obligations of the license.
