Subject Re: Writing spec code for the OSGi Alliance within the ASF
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2017 12:22:06 GMT
Ok, there are two more specific questions:

#1 Can a committer write *new* code at the ASF with a header file
mentioning the code is copyrighted to the OSGi Alliance  ?

#2 Can anyone can get this code from the ASF under ASL instead of getting
the same code from the OSGi Alliance and not be restricted by the OSGi
Alliance licensing terms under which this code is usually provided by the
OSGi Alliance ?
