Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-390) Using gcc and libstdc++
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2018 19:33:00 GMT
Jan Lahoda created LEGAL-390:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Using gcc and libstdc++
                 Key: LEGAL-390
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-390
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Jan Lahoda


The NetBeans podling has a component (native Windows launchers) that need to be built using
a C/C++ compiler. The current idea for building it is using gcc via MinGW. The component depends
on libsdtc++, and also on libgcc, as it is built using gcc. The question is whether we can
distribute the binary outcome as a convenience binary under Apache license. Besides the standard
license for libstdc++ and libgcc (which I believe is GPLv3), there is also "GCC RUNTIME LIBRARY
EXCEPTION":

[https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/libstdc++/manual/license.html]

which may allow such distribution.

It has been requested here:

that:

As for libstdc++ which I assume is a required GPL dependency, if you think there is a valid
exception it should be documented at

[http://apache.org/legal/resolved.html]

or derived from information found there, or maybe in a LEGAL jira ticket that clarifies things.

Thanks for any help!
