Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-54) Resolved.html should discuss optional dependencies.
Date Fri, 18 Mar 2011 16:22:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-54?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13008494#comment-13008494

Doug Cutting commented on LEGAL-54:
-----------------------------------

I'd suggest we s/project/product/ in Q3.  To my thinking, we should use "project" to refer
to community activity, the PMC, mailing lists, subversion, Jira, etc., and we should use "product"
to refer to a line of software that's released by a project.  Products have trademarks, not
projects, products are licensed, etc.  Some projects have multiple products.  We're not entirely
consistent with this terminology in the legal FAQ, so there are other places where I think
this could also probably be improved.  Otherwise, +1.

> 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.
