Subject RE: [Lucene.Net] Asking about Lucene.net License
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2011 21:08:10 GMT
Asha,

Lucene.net is an Apache Incubator project and is only distributed under an
Apache License version 2.  If you are using a GPL 3 License then there is
documented compatibility between the licenses as described on the page
http://www.apache.org/licenses/GPL-compatibility.html.  Give this
compatibility you can include Lucene.net in a GPL 3 project.  I am not sure
how on all of the mechanics of this inclusion but it can be done.  

Scott
