Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-303) RocksDB Integrations
Date Sat, 15 Jul 2017 21:11:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-303?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16088730#comment-16088730

David Recordon commented on LEGAL-303:

Hi all, wanted to jump in here to let everyone know that the RocksDB team is adjusting the
licensing such that it will be dual-licensed under the Apache 2 and GPL 2 (for MySQL compatibility)
licenses. This should happen shortly and well ahead of August 31st. I'll leave the history
and philosophy around licensing alone since it's generally a complex discussion to have and
I'm not sure that it has actually been fully captured in this thread especially vis a vis
Facebook's intent.

Hopefully this morning's guidance to PMCs can be adjusted since I don't think any of us see
a bunch of extra engineering effort as a desirable thing across the ASF projects which are
already making use of RocksDB :)

> 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?
