Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-176) Importing old non-Category-A deps tarballs on archive.apache.org
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2013 18:09:53 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-176?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13750341#comment-13750341

Ben Reser commented on LEGAL-176:

I think the issue here is that there are likely instructions and information about the older
versions that presume you have access to the -deps tarballs.  Right now those tarballs are
still available from subversion.tigris.org.

tigris.org unfortunately is not running a current version of Collab.Net's software and so
it is basically on life support.  Currently the two things the project still uses it for are
issue tracking and hosting these files.  We'd like to eliminate both of these issues so that
we're not caught flat footed once someone at Collab.Net decides they no longer want to keep
the lights on.

> 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?
