Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-248) Importing a podling from googlecode
Date Sat, 23 Apr 2016 19:19:12 GMT

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-248:
-------------------------------------

Looks to me that the history is:

1) Based on https://code.google.com/archive/p/gossip-protocol-java/source/default/commits
(Apache License 2.0, one committer: Josh Clemm).
2) Created on Google Code, two commits by harmenw: https://code.google.com/archive/p/java-gossip/source/default/commits
3) Forked to GitHub by edwardcapriolo.
4) Subsequently 47 commits by edwardcapriolo, 2 by irstevenson, 1 by joprice and 1 by ptgoetz.
Of which the latter doesn't look expressive (adding license headers).
5) Additonal pull requests by joprice and rsommerard have been included.

At all stages the licensing is Apache 2.0, so no need for any relicensing. 

I agree with your suspicion that the SGA should be from harmenw. He would seem, possibly along
with Josh Clemm, to be the author of the majority of the code. 

If he proves unavailable after reasonable effort, and this is an area where my opinion may
be more liberal than others at Apache, I would include all of the above in the NOTICE file
and move on.

> With the googlecode shutdown, they've instituted an "import this project into github"
feature which seems to flatten the code and allow it to be brought into a github repo.  This
basically removes the original author as anyone can perform this step (the original code was
using mercurial, so I suspect thats why it wasn't imported as commits).
> The incubator is looking to bring in a podling, Gossip, that was implemented this way:
https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/GossipProposal.  We're anticipating needing an SGA and wanted
to check on who that SGA should come from.
> My suspicion is the original author.  The original author is not involved in the apache
project going forward (and hadn't committed against the codebase for 6 years).
