Subject [jira] Closed: (LEGAL-63) Are Apache projects allowed to include Logback in their builds?
Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 21:07:18 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-63?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Henri Yandell closed LEGAL-63.

    Resolution: Not A Problem

Ralph: No irony. Abstract statement not happening, specific statements possible. It may be
that the resolved.html needs to indicate that exceptions may be made to category X.

Great to hear logback is dualed with EPL now. Definitely no need for the issue now and we
can start including logback binaries under EPL in distributions.

Ceki: Agreed. The reverse engineering clause is one of our chief concerns as to why LGPL is
not comparable to MPL/CDDL/EPL/CPL.

Resolving the issue, and thanks Ceki for relicensing.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-63
>             Project: Legal Discuss
>          Issue Type: Question
>            Reporter: Ceki Gulcu
> Background:
> SLF4J is licensed under the MIT license. Logback is licensed under the LGPL.
> SLF4J has an API which logback implements. SLF4J can be used with at least 5 other implementations,
some of which are licensed under AL2.0 and some under MIT. 
> Given that the end-user can pick and choose an implementation and assuming a given Apache
Project (AP) only imports SLF4J classes in its source code (java classes):
> 1) can AP include references to logback in its build scripts?
> 2) can AP include logback in its standard distribution?
