EPL License in docbook format [message #668138] Tue, 03 May 2011 22:54 Go to next message
Eclipse User
Originally posted by: jconlon.apache.org

We switched our license from GPL to EPL and now I need to update our
documentation to reflect the change. Using a Docbook tool chain to
build Eclipse Help and PDF documents and would like to include the EPL
in the document instead of just referencing it.

Is there a docbook version of the EPL that I can use?

thanks for any help,
John Conlon

Not that I know of ... but, at the main EPL document link [1] you'll
notice two links on the right hand side, one that says <br>
<br>
"<a href="http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl/notice.html">Software
User Agreement in plain HTML</a>" and one that says "<a
href="http://www.eclipse.org/legal/epl/feature.properties.txt">Software
User Agreement in Java properties format</a>". <br>
<br>
These are meant to be "save as" versions that can be used in
features (and the legal.html file, or in the feature.properties
file). <br>
<br>
The "plain html" one is actually "strict XHTML" is so maybe there's
a tool/stylesheet that can convert it automatically for you? <br>
<br>
If not, and you wanted to convert it with the right markup, I'm sure
the Foundation would consider a contribution (attached to an Eclipse
bugzilla) that had it in docbook format ... assuming content was
identical. <br>

David,

I have such a docbook document available and would like to contribute it.

What would be the appropriate Product/Component for such a Bugzilla?

Community/?

I would try Eclipse (Project) > Platform > Doc. If there's a better
place, the committers will re-route as necessary.

Yes, I'd pick "Eclipse Foundation", "Community", "Website" ... if you
haven't already attached somewhere. But, yes, Eric's right ... it'll be
redirected if there is a better place.

I created Bug 348313 https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=348313 containing the DocBook version of the EPL.

Sorry for the vacation caused delay.
