Subject Confirmation that this action for LEGAL-183 meets the resolution?
Date Thu, 19 May 2016 21:41:12 GMT
We now have a first Release Candidate for Apache SIS which aims to
implement the LEGAL-183 resolution ("Is Apache software allowed to
distribute the EPSG database?") [1]. Before to submit that release
candidate to a vote, I would like to verify if it is an acceptable
implementation of LEGAL-183 resolution. In summary:

  * The EPSG database would not be included in any file distributed on
    http://dist.apache.org/ [2].
  * The EPSG database would be distributed on Maven Central as
    org.apache.sis.non-free:​sis-epsg:​0.7 artifact [3].
  * The META-INF/LICENSE file in the Maven artifact is a copy of EPSG
    terms of use instead of Apache 2 license.
  * Users who want the EPSG dataset need to either:
      o declare themself a dependency to the
        org.apache.sis.non-free:​sis-epsg:​0.7 artifact.
      o or let the command-line tools install the dataset itself, in
        which case it will prompt the user for agreement.

More details are provided in the following instructions for Apache SIS


Would it be okay?
