[] [Bug 246945] Best Practices for interfacing with libs that are not EPL compatible  
Product/Component: Community / Architecture Council

I've been around the block enough times to have also heard all the things
you've just said. Clearly these legal issues are endlessly fascinating.  I can
say that based simply on the hour I spent yesterday with the IP Advisory
Committee. :-P

Obviously commercial vendors building on top of Eclipse technology are
massively important; hence the policy document Mike pointed us to.  One aspect
to keep in mind though is that there are commercial vendors who provide
software services and don't actually care about the clause you pointed out.  If
their customer wants to use Hibernate, they'd like to provide software and
services in support of that.  It would be nice to broaden Eclipse's base
without compromising any part of the commercial stack.
