Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-168) Apache Third-Party IP Policies
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2013 02:23:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-168?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13681855#comment-13681855
] 

Craig L Russell commented on LEGAL-168:
---------------------------------------

Just one minor quibble.

ASF publishes source code. Not necessarily compiled, nor necessarily compilable. The source
"as a whole" of each individual source release (of each project) is copyright ASF as a collective
work.

At times, compiled works based on ASF releases might be compiled and packaged as convenience
binaries. But there is no requirement that releases must be compiled in order to constitute
ASF releases.

> I'd like to help the Apache community to discuss Apache Software Foundation policies
regarding contributions of copyrighted works from third parties in order for us to publish
them at the Apache website. 
> This discussion is now scattered among many JIRA issues and email archives. For example,
a recent thread here reconstructed my own correspondence about this to the legal-discuss@
list in 2005 -- and then misinterpreted what I'd said then. So I want this new JIRA issue
where I am free to say what I want when I want to say it, without obstruction from issue-jumpers
and list-jumpers around here who try to discourage coherent arguments.
> I'll probably be wrong in some of what I say. I will sign my own comments here and I
will read (and perhaps respond to) any comments from anyone who signs his or her name here
also. I will particularly welcome comments from the attorneys on this list, at least those
who aren't too cowardly or too busy to speak up. If you don't enjoy legal controversy, don't
read this JIRA thread.
