Subject [jira] [Updated] (LEGAL-130) Handling of permissive licenses that are very similar to MIT/BSD/ASL/etc.
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2012 09:05:40 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-130?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Herbert Duerr updated LEGAL-130:
--------------------------------

    Description: 
A lot of organizations and developers provide their source under permissive licenses that
are not 100% copies of the licenses approved in category A.

Examples of typical cases can be seen in
    http://www.math.washington.edu/tex-archive/fonts/utilities/mm/parseAFM.h
    http://opensource.apple.com/source/X11/X11-0.40/xc/lib/Xrender/Xrender.h
    https://github.com/martinkahr/apple_remote_control/blob/master/AppleRemote.h
    http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=sane/sane-backends.git;a=blob;f=include/sane/sane.h;hb=HEAD
    http://www.twain.org/license.shtm
    ...

How should one handle them? Submit a JIRA issue for each file with a license that is not 100%
identical to the ones already categorized or are there general rules to auto-categorize them?
