Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-74) Inclusion of Jaxen code in Axiom
Date Sat, 29 May 2010 09:21:36 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-74?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12873261#action_12873261

Andreas Veithen commented on LEGAL-74:


Thanks for your feedback. I indeed already moved [1] the Jaxen stuff to a separate Maven module
(also because this prevents people from accidentally modifying these files, as happened in
the past). The only remaining thing now is to add specific LICENSE/NOTICE files to that project.

> The Axiom project includes the source code of two classes and a set of test files from
Jaxen. The reason is that these files are part of the Jaxen test suite and are not available
as Maven artifacts. An example can be found at [1]. These files were initially checked into
SVN in 2005 [2] and we have no trace showing that the legal questions around these files have
been addressed properly. There are several questions here:
> * Is the license compatible (I guess yes because Jaxen is used by several ASF projects)?
> * How to avoid legal issues caused by the inclusion of the code as sources into Axiom?
In particular, should the Java classes keep their original license headers, and what files
need to be added to the JAR artifact and source/binary distributions of the Axiom project?
