-------------------------------------

[~bayard] Thanks for the comment. It is possible to close this issue? Then Celix can more
forward with accepting the donation.

> The Apache Celix project is in the process of accepting a donation which implements a
service oriented publish subscribe mechanism. The publish subscribe feature will be an optional
feature for Apache Celix. 
> The donation contains two transport implementations one based on multicast UDP and one
based on zeromq (http://zeromq.org). 
>  
> The question is:
> Can Apache Celix release and distribute a optional module “PubSubAdmin ZMQ” which
uses the zeromq library (LGPL) to create a service oriented  publish subscribe mechanism?
> The zeromq library itself will not be distributed by Apache Celix and will be considered
a system requirement when the “PubSubAdmin ZMQ” option is selected. 
> When looking at the Previously Asked Questions [1] and Draft and out of date, but mentioned
as guidance, Third Party Licensing Policy [2] (specifically the part of system requirements)
I get the impression that this is acceptable. This is more or less confirmed in LEGAL-279
[3]. 
> The donation will also need an IP clearance and when looking at the IP clearance template
[4] I got a bit confused. Specifically the text: “Check and make sure that all items depended
upon by the project is covered by one or more of the following approved licenses: Apache,
BSD, Artistic, MIT/X, MIT/W3C, MPL 1.1, or something with essentially the same terms.” 
> Hopefully with this question we can remove the uncertainty.
