Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-254) Packaged Apache Beam for Google Cloud users
Date Fri, 13 May 2016 20:41:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-254?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15283120#comment-15283120

Sean Busbey commented on LEGAL-254:

Please make sure the Beam PPMC and mentors are aware of this ticket.

Generally, downstream folks are free to do whatever they like with ASF project output. The
key questions will be

1) What will you call this tailored SDK?

2) If the answer to #1 includes ASF trademarks, then how will this derivative sdk be assembled?
(Ideally the answer will be that a tarball from dist.apache will be downloaded and a sequence
of patches applied.)

> Howdy,
> In the past Google provided customers with "Cloud Dataflow SDKs" based in different languages
(Java, Python) for use with the Google Cloud Dataflow service. We've since moved the SDKs
to the Apache Beam (incubating) project.
> Cloud Dataflow will be one runner in Beam, however, as a runner it probably won't actively
support all of the bells an whistles within Beam. Additionally, we want to ensure we provide
timely support for those customers and not disrupt the larger ASF project.
> To this end, we're planning on repackaging a subset/scoped version of Beam for use with
Google Cloud Dataflow - that way customers using that particular runner have an SDK scoped
specifically for that service. That package will remain ASL2'd and will still create valid
Beam pipelines (so it's not a weird fork.)
> I wanted to ping Legal Discuss with the plan before we did it to see if there are major
concerns or blocks. 
> Thanks!
> James
