|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] fork of EPL code in EPL project allowed?|
the Eclipse eTrice project filed a bug  against the Text component of the Platform.
We would like to use the org.eclipse.jface.text.rules.RuleBasedScanner in a headless application. The RuleBasedScanner and related classes aren't depending on UI stuff, which is fine. However, the org.eclipse.jface.text bundle is depending on SWT. So we asked for a split into UI dependent and UI independent parts into separate bundles.
Since  didn't receive an answer within 3 month and I also assume that it's not likely that this part would be split off and moved to a separate bundle, my question is:
Is it allowed that the eTrice project forks the needed classes unchanged into its own code base? Of course this would require to place them inside a new bundle, e.g. org.eclipse.jface.text.rules, to avoid conflicts.
