Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-264) Fork and distribute JAXB
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2016 00:33:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-264?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15401404#comment-15401404

Dennis E. Hamilton commented on LEGAL-264:
------------------------------------------

Tying back to the original question, it strikes me that category B source code does not belong
on any Apache project's source SVN.

Sometimes, patches are kept in an SVN and only used at build time, but this still runs up
against license requirements for CDDL and ESL (and forget GPL altogether).

> We would like (to try) to adapt JAXB ([1],[2]) to replace xmlbeans and to support android
- this would be a substantial part of Apache POI.
> JAXB is dual licensed under GPL v2 and CDDL 1.1 [3]
> The process of adapting JAXB would include repacking a current version and changing the
source [1] - after this modification the new library probably won't be changed until a new
JAXB version appears. 
> So would it be possible to distribute a JAXB fork and link to it from an ASF project?
[4]
> If yes, what would be the process to do so? (e.g. a new incubator project or simply another
POI module? how are new versions handled?)
