Subject [jira] [Updated] (LEGAL-291) bison output / bison dependency in httpd
Date Sun, 12 Feb 2017 07:33:41 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-291?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Daniel Shahaf updated LEGAL-291:
--------------------------------


Would it be feasible to re-generate the .c/.h from the .y using
a permissively-licensed yacc implementation, and then ship _that_
generated code?  (Sidestepping the bison license classification issue)

> The httpd source distribution contains a parser generated by GNU bison. We currently
distribute the generated parser as opposed to depending on GNU bison to generate it at build
time.
> It is not really optional in any meaningful way.
> It seems like its terms technically limit what you can do with something based on httpd.
 We don't currently list anything about this issue in NOTICE/LICENSE.
> https://github.com/apache/httpd/blob/fbc5e20ead005fd3a2bec05924f9e90dfd195406/server/util_expr_parse.h
> Is there any way to keep this generated code?
