Subject [jira] [Resolved] (LEGAL-303) RocksDB Integrations
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2017 23:57:01 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-303?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Jeff Jirsa resolved LEGAL-303.
    Resolution: Fixed

Looks like we at least understand what options are - either plugin outside of the ASF repo,
or ask FB to change the wording of the patent grant. Given statements here that the wording
was intentionally incompatible with the Apache license, I'm not sure if that's likely to have
much impact (though [~dikanggu] , if you believe otherwise, that'd be good to know).

I'll leave the open question of Apache Flink and Apache Samza using RocksDB to legal.

> Hi Legal,
> There's a hypothetical question on the Apache Cassandra mailing list about potentially
expanding Cassandra's storage to be pluggable, specifically using RocksDB.
> RocksDB has a 3 clause BSD license (
> https://github.com/facebook/rocksdb/blob/master/LICENSE ), and a patent
> grant ( https://github.com/facebook/rocksdb/blob/master/PATENTS )
> I know the 3 clause BSD license is fine, but is the wording of the patent grant problematic?
