Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-54) Resolved.html should discuss optional dependencies.
Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 08:23:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-54?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12792821#action_12792821

Ralph Goers commented on LEGAL-54:
----------------------------------

I have to disagree. The way http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-x currently
reads leads people continue to believe that LGPL'd works cannot be used in any way by Apache
projects. It makes more sense to me to include the question and answer suggested here rather
than changing the answer to "Which licenses may NOT be included within Apache products?"

> 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.
