[dsdp-pmc] FW: webkit4swt status - CQ rejected due to LGPL dependency

FYI for the PMC


Wayne, perhaps you should update the PMC on what will be done in Eclipse vs. at the git repository?

Subject: [blinki-dev] webkit4swt status - CQ rejected due to LGPL dependency


This is a quick update on the status of the webkit4swt OSS contribution. The CQ has been rejected due to a strong LGPL dependency of WebKit. This outcome was not totally unexpected due to long standing Eclipse policies regarding this type of license. There are no hard feelings from this team as we have a good Plan-B. We pursued this approach as we wanted to go through the proper procedures to ensure that we give this project our best effort.


Our Plan-B is to host webkit4swt on a new GIT repository. That repo is being prepared this week and we should soon be able to move forward with this OSS effort.
