Subject RE: [VOTE] Release Apache Fineract 0.1.2 (incubating)
Date Thu, 26 May 2016 11:58:28 GMT
Hey Mike,

hope this finds you well. ; o)

You're right, we are not depending on a GPL licensed library.
But LGPL (Hibernate) is treated the same way as GPL, so
we need to do some work on our side.

Best,

Markus
