|[eclipse.org-architecture-council] [Bug 246945] Best Practices for interfacing with libs that are not EPL compatible|
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=246945 Product/Component: Community / Architecture Council --- Comment #4 from Ed Merks <Ed.Merks@xxxxxxxxx> 2008-09-11 08:02:17 -0400 --- Oisin, 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. -- Configure bugmail: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: ------- You are on the CC list for the bug.
