> The chronicle project switched their licensing to lgpl some time ago. So I reached out
to them if they would consider switching back to Apache license 2. Peter Lawrey responded
that they are interested in usage by Apache so he added a license excemption for open source
projects.
> See https://github.com/OpenHFT/Chronicle-Queue/blob/master/LICENSE%20for%20Open%20Source%20product%20usage.txt
> and
> https://github.com/OpenHFT/Chronicle-Queue/issues/250
> So my question: Is this special licensing acceptable for Apache? Dan Kulp told me that
it might be a field of use restriction that we can not accept.
