Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-278) A change in license of JQuery
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2016 01:04:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-278?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15590406#comment-15590406

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-278:
-------------------------------------

Seconding Sean's answer. The license in the software is expected to be the relevant license
for that software. Talking to jQuery (and/or the JS Foundation) would be the best way to handle
any concerns, but .

What gets to be fun with jQuery is that their source header has, at times, only referred to
that URL instead of even text like "MIT License", so it would be interesting to know if they
really intended to cause confusion around the possibility that they want to relicense older
versions.

> Hi,
> JQuery release 3.1.1 is under MIT 
> https://github.com/jquery/jquery/blob/3.1.1/LICENSE.txt
> The same github page also has a reference to website https://jquery.com/
> The license link on website https://jquery.com/ points to 
> https://jquery.org/license/    which seems now to be ASL 2.0
> We know that MIT and ASL are compatible.
> *The question is from which location does one pickup the license from?*
> *Do we always rely on the license under the source repository or from the referenced
website?*
