Subject Use of third party text content in source release
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2016 20:51:30 GMT
Hi,

We recently run into potential copyright issues with an Apache Apex source
release. I'm looking for an opinion regarding inclusion of following:

Content from Tweets (this was used as test data):

https://github.com/apache/apex-malhar/blob/v3.5.0-RC1/demos/highlevelapi/src/test/resources/sampletweets.txt

Content from Project Gutenberg (again, used as test data):

https://github.com/apache/apex-malhar/blob/v3.5.0-RC1/library/src/test/resources/wordcount.txt

This eBook is for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with
almost no restrictions whatsoever.  You may copy it, give it away or
re-use it under the terms of the Project Gutenberg License included
with this eBook or online at www.gutenberg.org

Blog feed from DataTorrent (RSS test data):

https://github.com/apache/apex-malhar/blob/v3.5.0-RC1/contrib/src/test/resources/com/datatorrent/contrib/romesyndication/datatorrent_feed.rss

Would appreciate any feedback on whether the data can be used or not and
also any pointers to further information for the community to avoid similar
issues in the future.

Thanks!
Thomas
