Justin Mclean commented on LEGAL-213:
-------------------------------------

Re CERN you can find the code in question (a generic sorter) and license here [1][2].

Here's the full text of the license: 

Copyright © 1999 CERN - European Organization for Nuclear Research.

Permission to use, copy, modify, distribute and sell this software and its documentation for
any purpose is hereby granted without fee, provided that the above copyright notice appear
in all copies and that both that copyright notice and this permission notice appear in supporting
documentation. CERN makes no representations about the suitability of this software for any
purpose. It is provided "as is" without expressed or implied warranty.

How is this not comparable with Apache?

> Saxon looked like it was MPL, but deeper investigation shows a set of NOTICE files that
make it seem like there are non-Apache-compatible dependencies.
> Also, it is hard to tell which notices actually apply to the one jar Flex actually uses
(saxon9.jar)
> We are using an older version than what is described here:
> http://saxonica.com/html/documentation/conditions/redistributed.html
> But I think some of the information still applies.
