Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-171) OK to distribute code containing the JavadocFixTool
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2013 16:28:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-171?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13690448#comment-13690448

Sam Ruby commented on LEGAL-171:
--------------------------------

> 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. 

If those were the only conditions, I don't think anybody here would be concerned.

More troublesome is the phrase: "only for the purpose of analyzing the directory structure
of your computer system and updating Java API Documentation files".

> 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.
