Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-185) Classify 3-clause BSD ("simplified BSD")
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2013 01:37:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-185?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13837214#comment-13837214

Kevan Miller commented on LEGAL-185:

Shane: a very good question... I should have been slightly more verbose in my response...
Projects are already using 3-clause BSD. As Rob has pointed out, we're not doing a good job
of documenting *what* BSD variants are approved.

>          Issue Type: Question
>            Reporter: Rob Weir
> This question was never really answered on the list, so I'm resubmitting it via JIRA
to fit the apparent workflow a little better.
> The category-a list [1] currently includes:
> "BSD (without advertising clause)."
> It links to the 2-clause BSD [2].
> My understanding is that the 4-clause BSD ("original BSD") [3] is the
> one that is not permitted.
> But nothing is said about the newer 3-clause BSD ("simplified BSD")  [4]
> I propose that the "simplified BSD" should be added to the category-a list.
