Subject Apache Metron - licensing question
Date Tue, 11 Apr 2017 00:46:11 GMT
Hi all,

I recently asked a licensing question to our dev mailing list.  I did get
from one of our mentors, but he also requested that we get a double check.
Please see below for a bit of background and my questions.  Thanks!


We have a situation where a portion of code
was created for Apache Metron (incubating), which is a plugin for a
separate open source project, bro <>.  The code was
later pushed out by the initial author to the bro community under the
3-Clause BSD license
<>, and
some important
have been made to the plugin in that separate community, which we would
like to include in our code, while merging with some recent changes
that have been made in the Metron code base as well (i.e. we are not simply
pulling the code down from the external project).  This was discussed
on the Metron dev mailing list, and we wanted to get some clarification
before moving forward.


1. Is it valid to assume that, as Casey mentioned
these are two separate plugins and we can simply make modifications to our
code base to resolve the current multithreading issue?

2. If we do 1, will this require a line in our LICENSE file as a derivative
work, or anything else?
