Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-463) Can UNLICENSE to be added to Category A?
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2019 14:18:00 GMT

Sean Owen commented on LEGAL-463:
---------------------------------

Unofficial reply: looks like that is clearly marked as 'public domain':
"This is free and unencumbered software released into the public domain."

So it can be handled as per:
https://apache.org/legal/resolved.html#handling-public-domain-licensed-works
as
"the work is covered by ... a suitable dedication (to the public domain) by the authors"
