Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-152) Accepting GPL licensed code
Date Fri, 04 Jan 2013 12:38:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-152?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13543846#comment-13543846

Sam Ruby commented on LEGAL-152:
--------------------------------

The PMC in question makes the determination as to what constitutes a "substantial contribution".

In the case of 500 lines of code developed by 1 person, I would recommend that you request
an ICLA from that individual.

> 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.
