Subject WebWork 2 podling IP clearance questions
Date Wed, 19 Apr 2006 18:57:47 GMT
I'd like to get the WebWork 2 podling out of incubation and into Struts, but
I have some questions to help determine if the requirements have been met.

 1. Does all Java code have to use the ASF copyright header?  We have some
files that have a "NanoContainer Organization" copyright, with an
ASF-derived license following.

 2. We also have a Javascript file with this strange header:
// Author: Matt Kruse <>
// WWW:
// NOTICE: You may use this code for any purpose, commercial or
// private, without any further permission from the author. You may
// remove this notice from your final code if you wish, however it is
// appreciated by the author if at least my web site address is kept.
// You may *NOT* re-distribute this code in any way except through its
// use. That means, you can include it in your product, or your web
// site, or any other form where the code is actually being used. You
// may not put the plain javascript up on your site for download or
// include it in your javascript libraries for download.
// If you wish to share this code with others, please just point them
// to the URL instead.
// Please DO NOT link directly to my .js files from your site. Copy
// the files to your server and use them there. Thank you.
How should we handle this?

 3. The rest of the code had an OpenSymphony copyright, and they have faxed
over a code grant, so the ASF license header has been applied throughout.
Save the above issues, is that all we need to do to clear the IP?

Thanks in advance,
