Todd Lipcon commented on LEGAL-238:

OK, given the current licensing is a little "grey", we'll just do the easy thing and stop
using the file. Thanks

> 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.
