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

[~davidrecordon] - that sounds like a fantastic change, and I'm excited to see it land.

> 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?
