Description Jukka Zitting 2008-12-07 09:10:48 UTC
The chunks_parse_cmds.tbl file in HDGF is licensed under the GPLv3 and thus
we only have the right to use it the work based on the file is published under
the same license. Apache policies prohibit that, so the file should be
removed or replaced somehow unless we can get the original author to grant us
an alternative license.

This is being sent over to legal-discuss for further review
Comment 2 David Fisher 2008-12-29 19:34:57 UTC
Nick reports that the author of the file, Valek, released an ASF licensed version of the file in question. He will update svn when he next returns to his main development machine.
Comment 3 Nick Burch 2008-12-31 10:21:29 UTC
The newly dual licensed version has now been committed to svn, and the legal notice updated to remove the gplv3 bit

Excellent, thanks!
