Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-176) Importing old non-Category-A deps tarballs on archive.apache.org
Date Sun, 25 Aug 2013 21:31:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-176?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13749746#comment-13749746

Kevan Miller commented on LEGAL-176:

Can someone describe the impact (presumably negative) to the subversion community if the -deps
tarballs were not included?

FYI -- some tangential licensing information on socklen-arg-type.m4 licensing -- https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/precise/+source/cadaver/+copyright

> Subversion 1.6 and earlier was developed and released outsidfe of ASF.  The project released,
in addition to its own tarballs (subversion-1.6.0.tar.gz{,.asc}), -deps tarballs which contained
several dependencies (some of them mandatory to build).  Those dependencies are:
> % for i in subversion-deps-1.4.6.tar.gz subversion-deps-1.5.9.tar.gz subversion-deps-1.6.19.tar.gz
; do tar tvf $i | cut -d/ -f3 ; done | sort | uniq
> apr
> apr-util
> neon
> serf
> sqlite-amalgamation
> zlib
> Of these, Neon is the only one which is not Category A; it is LGPL/GPL:
> [[[
> The neon library source code is licensed under the GNU Library GPL;
> see src/COPYING.LIB for full details.  The manual and test suite are
> licensed under the terms of the GNU GPL; see test/COPYING for terms.
> The autoconf macros in the "macros" directory are under a less
> restrictive license, see each file for details.
> ]]]
> Additionally, neon/macros/socklen-arg-type.m4 does not specify a license.
> Subversion has imported its 1.0->1.6 non-ASF releases to http://archive.apache.org/dist/subversion/.
May the project import its historical -deps tarballs as well?
