Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Fineract 0.1.2 (incubating)
Date Wed, 25 May 2016 18:57:05 GMT

This thread appears to mix LGPL (Hibernate) and GPL (nothing used in
Fineract AFAIK). They are not quite the same of course. It seems like even
LGPL really is a problem then?

Just thought it would be worth to be precise here.
