Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-157) May we include models without release the data the models were built from
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2013 21:19:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-157?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13561092#comment-13561092

Benson Margulies commented on LEGAL-157:
----------------------------------------

Let's clearly distinguish three things:

# the inputs to the machine learning process
# the output of the machine learning process
# the compiled output of the machine learning process

For both SpamAssassin and OpenNLP, the policy view was that *the source* is the *first item*,
and if that item is not available, the results are not *open source*.

Roy T. Fielding has written that he will personally direct the infra group to run the rm command
to delete anything that does not meet his definition of 'source' from Foundation resources:


Roy's email on this general topic of 'it has to be source' are specific, graphic, and eloquent,
and no other officer of the Foundation has ever offered any other view.

So I don't see how it is possible to check in the middle-step sources without revisiting that
discussion.
