Subject [jira] [Closed] (LEGAL-24) Scripts, source, and Reciprocal Licenses
Date Fri, 14 Aug 2015 07:05:46 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-24?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Henri Yandell closed LEGAL-24.
    Resolution: Won't Fix

Closing this as Won't Fix.

My take is that there is mild interest (from this ticket and mailing list discussions) in
the policy describing other permitted uses of some copyleft licenses (the Mozilla and Eclipse
families jumping to my mind), but that there isn't an interest at this point in trying to
define generalities.

Specific and real use cases should be opened as their own JIRAs.

>            Reporter: Sam Ruby
> The current draft of the Third Party Licensing Policy (0.53) contains the following text
under the section concerning Reciprocal Licenses:
> Note that works written in a scripting language without a binary form cannot be included
in any ASF product under one of these licenses (see Transition and Exceptions).
> We need to decide if this truly is necessary.
