Subject Findbugs Annotations LGPL Replacement
Date Sat, 28 Nov 2015 03:50:06 GMT
Findbugs has an LGPL license which is fine if its just used as a build
tool[1], but it also has a set of Annotations[2] which are not permitted to
be used in ASF code.

There is a "clean room" implementation of the Findbugs annotations[3] under
the Apache License available - is there any reason why this couldn't be
used?

Thanks

Niall
