Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-261) Include (c) SalesForce source code in Apache Camel source code
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2016 06:01:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-261?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15367269#comment-15367269

Claus Ibsen commented on LEGAL-261:

Yes the BSD license was added by SalesForce after.

There was a PR beforehand with some code changes form the person, and in that PR we then noticed
that one file looked like it was copied from SalesForce, and because of that we asked about
the license of that particular code

And so the person got in talk with SalesForce and asked them about the license, and then they
added the BSD license.

>                 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
