Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-176) Importing old non-Category-A deps tarballs on archive.apache.org
Date Mon, 02 Sep 2013 16:20:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-176?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13756153#comment-13756153

Greg Stein commented on LEGAL-176:


Apache is hosting these files. They are not *produced* by Apache (which need to be ALv2).
If the Foundation decides that it would be helpful for our users to host certain files, then
so be it. IMO, that completely fits within our desired policies.

> 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?
