OK I've added that email to the thread. I don't know what INFRA or JIRA are.

The question is: "We want to release druid as a docker image. The docker
image will be based on Linux, and thus have GPL code in it which is not
part of the druid project. In addition, we want to pull a file from the
Maven repository (mysql-connector-java). A request was raised in the Pull
Request #6896 <> to
veriify this. The people that raised the concerns don't have specifics,
just a general question as to if this is allowed."

The specifics are to use as the base container
(Apache license overall (ref github
<>), containing GPL
components e.g. busybox), and run this command:

RUN wget -O

Note that druid does not function without GPL code since its start scripts
use bash.

I believe this is 'mere aggregation' under the GPL.
