Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-464) LGPL Runtime of Apache Weex
Date Tue, 25 Jun 2019 16:35:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-464?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16872510#comment-16872510

Roman Shaposhnik commented on LEGAL-464:

First point: it is a very bad idea to remove original license headers (but it looks like you
caught that mistake already).

Secondly, including license headers under 2-clause BSD license is completely fine. No issue

Bundling Webkit.so and  Webkit.so in the convenience artifact is *currently* not a good idea
and is *not* allowed for ASF TLPs. However, for podlings, there's an active discussion within
the IPMC to relax those rules. Stay tuned, but for now I'd recommend excluding  Webkit.so
from your binary artifacts.

If you want to make it easier for your users to get a working bundle you can provide a separate
tool for downloading non-ASF license binaries.

> Hi, there
> I am a PPMC member of Apache Weex, and I'm suggested to move a discussion[1] about LGPL
runtime to here.
> Let me briefly introduce the situation.
> Apache Weex is a mobile framework and targets three platforms/environment currently,
e.g. Android, iOS, Normal Browser.
> In order to support Android Platform, Weex has to rely on Webkit at runtime, which is
under LGPL and BSD License. The header files(.h file) that Weex includes from Webkit are all
under BSD License and Weex.so has a dynamic link to Webkit.so at runtime. This is only for
Android platform as iOS/Browser has a built-in Webkit environment already.
> I'd like to know whether this complies ASF's License policy [3], Thanks.
> BTW: Currently, Weex bundles Webkit.so and Weex.so toghether in its convenience binary
for users' convenience, but Webkit.so could also be removed from convenience binary of Weex
if needed.
