Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-275) Contribute module upstream (Eclipse RDF4J)
Date Fri, 30 Sep 2016 05:55:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-275?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15535134#comment-15535134

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-275:
-------------------------------------

The Eclipse Foundation lists Apache 2.0 on their acceptable third party license list: https://eclipse.org/legal/eplfaq.php#3RDPARTY

Assuming Eclipse takes a similar approach to us, I would expect that they would prefer to
have CLAs covering code, but would be prepared to have Apache 2.0 licensed code (especially
from an ASF project) within one of their projects.

To have the code be covered by Eclipse CLAs, you would need to work with them to identify
the contributors to the code that they require CLAs from. I don't believe Apache could sign
a CLA in such a way to pass along the CLAs we have to Eclipse, and Apache itself has little,
if anything, that it would be signing a CLA for.

So best next step is to discus with Eclipse. It looks like an email to license (at) eclipse.org
may be the best ay. I'm happy to help, so feel free to cc me.

> Marmotta has implemented quite some extra modules for Sesame: https://github.com/apache/marmotta/tree/develop/commons/marmotta-sesame-tools
Sesame has moved to Eclipse under RDF4J, but that's not much relevant for this legal question.
> Now there is interest form the community to have the {{rdfpatch}} module officially in
the library. See MARMOTTA-649 for further background.
> Therefore we'd like if there is any legal issue from the legal perspective to contribute
ASF code to the Eclipse Foundation. According [their contributing guidelines|https://github.com/eclipse/rdf4j/blob/master/.github/CONTRIBUTING.md]
we'd need to submit a ICLA; do we need to also fill a CLA at Foundation level?
> Thanks in advance.
