Description hdu@apache.org 2012-02-15 10:46:48 UTC
Similar to issue 118587 also the internal module main/writerperfect has an incompatible license.
Comment 1 hdu@apache.org 2012-02-15 12:00:44 UTC
On a second thought the module has been contributed to OpenOffice.org via the SCA, from where its files have been granted to the Apache Foundation via the SGA-2 so it is ready to be relicensed under the ALv2.
Comment 2 hdu@apache.org 2012-03-01 12:01:12 UTC
Solved by Andrew with revision 1229826.
Comment 3 Andrea Pescetti 2014-12-27 18:51:38 UTC
@hdu (or anyone who knows): Could you clarify the status of main/writerperfect? 

I was ready to remove the directory now, based on the fact that it is unused, see also http://markmail.org/message/7k6dk4wop4h2txtb (and I actually verified that a normal build does not need the main/writerperfect directory, so it can simply be removed).

But does your comment above mean that we can keep it? (In that case, then it would be better to use it)

Looking at --
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1229826

Why were some items relicensed and others not?

"pescetti" committed SVN revision 1648122 into trunk:
#i118919# Remove main/writerperfect (currently unused).
Comment 6 Andrea Pescetti 2014-12-27 22:36:53 UTC
In the end I removed main/writerperfect since it's unused and I prefer to be on the safe side. But if the discussion in this issue had resolved in favor of keeping it, I can surely restore it. So I'm not closign the issue, pending clarifications.

Reset the assignee to the default "issues@openoffice.apache.org".
