Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-81) Is it ok/meaningful to have a dependency licensed as ASL just for Apache Software Foundation, but LGPL for anyone else?
Date Thu, 19 May 2011 09:41:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-81?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13036093#comment-13036093

Mohammad Nour commented on LEGAL-81:
------------------------------------

Now Sergey has sent us an e-mail confirming that he agrees on dual licensing his code under
both ASL v2.0 additionally to LGPL. Now the question is:

Is that enough ? Or we need to do a more formal action like make him sign some paper work
for example ?

Notice that he didn't update his site [1] yet to reflect that information.

> We are in the process of setting up Apache Isis into the incubator (the code prior to
Apache being called the Naked Objects Framework and sister projects).
> I've now realized that one of the modules has a small dependency on code that has an
LGPL license (a small Javascript file) that would be part of the distribution.  Since my understanding
was that LGPL is not ASL 2 compatible, I contacted the developer about whether he might consider
moving to ASL.  His response was to grant permission as follows:
> -begin-
> Yes, I authorize "NO framework and your sister projects accepted  [2] into the Apache
incubator" to use my XMLHttpRequest.js library (available at the http://code.google.com/p/xmlhttprequest/
 and currently licensed under LGPL) with the ASL license.
> [2] http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/IsisProposal. 
> -end-
> So, my question is: is this sufficient for us?
> Many thanks,
> Dan Haywood
