Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-293) Adding ASF license headers to the code that came from a BSD licensed project
Date Thu, 23 Feb 2017 00:39:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-293?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15879593#comment-15879593

John D. Ament commented on LEGAL-293:


So I just want to confirm, because I feel like we've gone full circle about what the podling
is or is not doing.  If I follow http://markmail.org/message/7rpbk2odapl2r3q3 correctly:

- Add an ASF header if we have modified the code.  Do not remove the BSD header.
- If all copyright holders of the file agree to move to ASF, then we can replace the specific
file's BSD header with ASF AL header.

And just to confirm:

- The podling is not adding a hybrid header https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-293?focusedCommentId=15877349&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-15877349
- The podling is neither re-licensing nor sub-licensing, its more like they're dual licensing
(but that's not even 100% accurate)

If this is all correct, then my final ask is that we add a resolution indicating what to do
when modifying Cat-A source code that has not been granted via a SGA.
