I have a couple of questions regarding license files and/or licensing for
a branded product, which we will not be charging any fee. I have not
changed any existing Eclipse plug-ins, merely added my own for
customization. I will be adding the following to WTP1.5/VTP1.0:
1) I created a several new plug-ins:
a) com.<company>.speechtools - This plug-in holds all my branding stuff.
b) com.<company>.speechtools.doc - This plug-in holds my documentation
stuff.
c) com.<company>.speechtools.vxml.ui - This plug-in has my Snippet
extension to the SnippetsContribution plug-in which contain custom VXML
that are only applicable to my company's speech platform.
2) I created a feature (com.<company>.speechtools.feature) for these
plug-ins.
3) I created an update site project (com.<company>.speechtools.update) so
users can update these plug-ins from my website.

1) Do I need any special license or approval from the Eclipse foundation
to do what I am doing?
2) I plan on redistributing this branded version of Eclipse to users
developing on our speech platform. Am I required to submit any of my
plug-ins to the VTP (or any Eclipse) repository?
3) Is my version of Eclipse considered a "commercial" release? Based on
what I am doing, on there any items in particular in the EPL that you can
think of that I will need to comply with?
4) For my license files (and about.html files for each plug-in), is there
a template I need to follow or since this branded version is free, can I
merely put "This product is free." in the license file?
5) Do my plug-ins need to be made available for download from some
repository (or site). I plan on providing some contact information, will
this suffice?

Thank you for yor time!

Stan

I originally posted these questions here, but in reading one of the topics
in this newgroup, one recommended posting questions like these under the
eclipse.foundation newgroup, so I posted them there as well. It is not
recommended to post the same question(s) in more than one newsgroup, but
this was not intentional. I believe the responses to my questions (from
Ed Merks) on the eclipse.foundation newgroup were adequate and may be
helpful to someone else. The subject was "licensing questions" and
questions and answers were both posted on 09/21/06. However, if someone
has additional information to these question, please feel free to respond.

Thanks,
Stan Rivera
