Subject Re: LEGAL-230 - Snappy-Java/GCC Runtime Exception
Date Sun, 21 Feb 2016 13:30:46 GMT
Hen,

I believe what is being stated here and in the thread [1] is that the
original GPL w/Exception source material (libstdc++) was combined with
ASLv2 source material (snappy) and it resulted in a binary which takes
on the chosen license ASLv2 (chosen by snappy).  As a result  then the
Snappy-Java binary is ASLv2 and allowable for use.

That the NOTICE mentions the special exception [2] does not apply to
the category-x mention of disallowed special exceptions in this case
[3].

Is that correct?

[1] https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-230
[2] https://github.com/xerial/snappy-java/blob/develop/NOTICE
[3] http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-x

Thanks
Joe
