Subject Re: [IP CLEARANCE] Apache Brooklyn - CLI
Date Mon, 07 Mar 2016 17:43:27 GMT
A software grant can only grant rights that are owned by the grantor.

If there was a(n innocent) mistake in the file referenced by the grant, no big deal IMHO.

Clearly, bundled dependencies cannot be included in a grant since the grantor has no rights
to them. The fact that they were included in a file referenced by the grant has no relevance.
Including them was just a mistake.

No action needed IMHO since the intent is clear.
