Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-296) Eclipse Public License - v 1.0 files in OFBiz
Date Fri, 14 Apr 2017 16:15:41 GMT

Shane Curcuru commented on LEGAL-296:
-------------------------------------

I'm with Marvin on this one.  Ensuring we don't ever surprise users with non-standards body
source files with other licenses is important.

>                 Key: LEGAL-296
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-296
>             Project: Legal Discuss
>          Issue Type: Question
>            Reporter: Jacques Le Roux

> This has been discussed in the OFBiz project and we prefer to ask before taking a definitive
decision.
> We read at  http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-b
> bq. For small amounts of source that is directly consumed by the ASF product at runtime
in source form, and for which that source is unmodified and unlikely to be changed anyway
(say, by virtue of being specified by a standard), inclusion of appropriately labeled source
is also permitted. An example of this is the web-facesconfig_1_0.dtd, whose inclusion is mandated
by the JSR 127: JavaServer Faces specification
> My question is:
> Can the files under folders at https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ofbiz/ofbiz-plugins/trunk/birt/webapp/birt/webcontent/birt,
all licensed under https://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl-v10.html be included in source form,
without modifications, in an Apache (source) release?  It's 160 files and 541 523 bytes at
all. If the answer is yes, are there any legal requirements (i.e. additions to LICENSE and/or
NOTICE file)?
> Thanks!
