Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-171) OK to distribute code containing the JavadocFixTool
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2013 16:02:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-171?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13690418#comment-13690418

Martijn Verburg commented on LEGAL-171:
---------------------------------------

The only thing I can add is that it's not an OSI approved license.  However it's terms do
seem to state that the source and binary can be modified and distributed as long as the original
license header is kept.

> Oracle have released a tool which can be used to fix a vulnerability in Javadoc created
by earlier versions of their javadoc application.
> We'd like to include the code as part of a Maven plugin, but doubts have been raised
as to whether the license allows this.
> If it's relevant, the code would need to be amended slightly to fix some bugs and change
the package name so it can be called from other packages.
