Date Mon, 29 Feb 2016 22:19:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-238?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15172726#comment-15172726

Justin Mclean commented on LEGAL-238:

This may be troublesome:
"Permission to make digital or hard copies of all or part of this work for personal or classroom
use is granted without fee provided that copies are not made or distributed for profit or
commercial advantage and that copies bear this notice and the full citation on the first page.
 To copy otherwise, to republish, to post on servers or to redistribute to lists, requires
prior specific permission and/or a fee."

> The Kudu incubator podling has an academic-style whitepaper as part of its source repository.
The paper is authored in LaTeX, and we used the VLDB conference's LaTeX style (.cls file)
for formatting:
> https://github.com/apache/incubator-kudu/blob/master/docs/whitepaper/vldb.cls
> The original file did not have any license header. I emailed the ACM and received permission
to redistribute with a specific header, which I added here:
> https://github.com/apache/incubator-kudu/commit/6991cd432d0be35743995b3ca7cb5eedc072e3cb
> Looking for the legal team's approval to distribute this as is. Or, if not, we can remove
this file and use some other LaTeX template.
