Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-319) Clarify the usage of ReactJS
Date Sun, 20 Aug 2017 01:16:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-319?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16134278#comment-16134278

Greg Stein commented on LEGAL-319:

Historically, the Foundation has allowed "improperly licensed" code and dependencies to reside
within source control. This occurs often for podlings. ... The restrictions have only been
around *releasing to users*, since that is our goal: do not surprise users with restrictions
beyond ALv2. Given that history, I would expect (but cannot confirm) that couchdb-fauxton
can remain on ASF hardware while the dependency is removed.

For completeness, I'll note that podlings sometimes make releases with improper dependencies,
but there are plenty of disclaimers for that situation. Legal has already stated such exceptions
are not available to TLPs with regards to this license.

BSD+Patents license.  Can:

> - Apache projects depend on it as a compile time dependency in their projects?
