Subject Clarification of "distribution" under the SGA
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2013 17:49:27 GMT
The SGA contains the following:

"Grant of Copyright License. Subject to the terms and conditions
of this Agreement, You hereby grant to the Foundation and to
recipients of software distributed by the Foundation a perpetual,
worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable
copyright license to reproduce, prepare derivative works of,
publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute
Your Contributions and such derivative works."

and similar language for patents. Is a checkout of code from an Apache 
svn repository considered "software distributed by the Foundation", even 
if said code is in an unreleased branch?

Thanks,
--
