Subject Re: Urgent help Needed with LGPL library used in Apache Isis - (was: Re: [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 Tue, 31 May 2011 17:09:34 GMT
If it's entirely his, I believe that an iCLA or an SGA are
equivalently effective, and at least one is required.

 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:

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.
