Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-63) Are Apache projects allowed to include Logback in their builds?
Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 08:33:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-63?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12792822#action_12792822

Ralph Goers commented on LEGAL-63:

I find this ironic with regards to your response to LEGAL-54. By addressing that issue there
is no need to spell out how to handle Logback with regards to the LGPL.

Also, I should point out that Ceki should have updated this issue. He has changed Logback
to be dual licensed under both LGPL and EPL at the user's choice. Therefore I believe the
answer to this issue should now be yes since the EPL is already documented as being allowed.

>                 Key: LEGAL-63
>                 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?
