Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-118) What is the definition of a "third-party" work?
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:29:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-118?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14790666#comment-14790666

Sean Busbey commented on LEGAL-118:
-----------------------------------

Also, can someone reconcile this guidance with the dev guide for assembling LICENSE/NOTICE
files?

from http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html#bundle-asf-product

BUNDLING OTHER ASF PRODUCTS
It is not necessary to duplicate the line "This product includes software developed at the
Apache Software Foundation...", though the ASF copyright line and any other portions of NOTICE
must be considered for propagation.

> it's not clear to me what the definition of a "third party work" is, specifically in
reference to Apache projects that build on each other. A concrete example:
> Apache TLP "A" contains a jar file developed by Apache TLP "B". Is A required to treat
B as a "third-party"? In other words, are all Apache projects "first party", and non-Apache
projects "third party"?
> I've looked at both of the following w/o finding an answer to my question:

> http://apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0
