Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-261) Include (c) SalesForce source code in Apache Camel source code
Date Thu, 07 Jul 2016 22:54:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-261?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15366910#comment-15366910

Justin Mclean commented on LEGAL-261:

INAL but IMO the terms of the BSD license allow you to do that.

However it's nice (and possibly unwritten ASF policy) to ask the owner permission to fork
their software.

I also note that the BSD license has only added in the last week so it seems odd the PR is
from the same time. Unless the BSD license was added by Salesforce at a request of the project/person
who submitted the PR?

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-261
>             Project: Legal Discuss
>          Issue Type: Question
>            Reporter: Claus Ibsen
> We have a PR about 1 java source code
> https://github.com/apache/camel/pull/1055
> That source code was developed by developers from SalesForce. And they
> have setup a project on github with the source code at:
> https://github.com/developerforce/StreamingReplayClientExtensions
> That source code is licensed using BSD as shown in the LICENSE file
> https://github.com/developerforce/StreamingReplayClientExtensions/blob/master/LICENSE
> This means the java source code from the PR will have a license header
> from BSD with (c) Salesforce Developers.
> As all our other source code is (c) ASF then I am a bit uneasy about this PR.
> We would just like to hear from Legal at ASF with your thoughts on this? 
> Another issue is that the PR we have received is done by a person working in a company
NOT from SalesForce. That person whom did the PR got the source code from SalesForce because
they are a custom of theirs and have consultants helping them.  Does it matter if the person
doing the PR copied the code from the salesforce git repo at: https://github.com/developerforce/StreamingReplayClientExtensions
> and put that source code into a PR for Apache Camel? 
> Many thanks
