Subject Re: Cobertura's view of the apache license versus the GPL
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2011 17:17:28 GMT
Mark,

Well, no, not quite.

1. The 'tasks' that are executed include code that extends classes in
cobertura. These classes have Apache IP notices; invalid Apache IP
notices, no less, since they claim that the code has been licensed to
the Foundation when it was not (it lives at Codehaus). So the plugin
does contain code that compiles against cobertura, not just
command-line invocations.

2. A recent proposed patch to fix aggregation introduced more calls to
more Cobertura apis. This has produced a debate as to whether, on the
one hand, the existing implementation complies with the license page,
or on the other hand, whether the strictures of the license page have
any legal validity.
