Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-152) Accepting GPL licensed code
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 15:11:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13537068#comment-13537068

Ivan Habunek commented on LEGAL-152:
------------------------------------

Looking at the commit log of the repository [1], it seems he did make all the commits himself.
I do not see any sign that he pulled any other person's contribution.

I can ask him to confirm that he is the author of all the code. It's not very big (3 classes)
just somewhat bigger than we usually get.

Any other checks I have to make?

> Apache log4php project just recieved a nice contribution which is unfortunately licensed
under GPL (not specified whether v2 or v3). Sample here:
> https://github.com/d-ulyanov/log4php-graylog2/blob/master/log4php/appenders/LoggerAppenderAMQP.php
> I was wandering what are our options. I believe we may convince the contributor to change
the license, but is that the only possibility? Can he sign over the rights for us to relicense
the work or something similar? (IANAL and am a bit clueless)
> We are also considering to ask the contributor to sign the ICLA since it's a somewhat
larger contribution than we usually get.
