|[eclipse.org-architecture-council] [Bug 269184] New: CDT user docs contain direct links to downloadable GPL'd EXEs|
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=269184 Product/Component: CDT / cdt-doc Summary: CDT user docs contain direct links to downloadable GPL'd EXEs Product: CDT Version: 6.0 Platform: PC OS/Version: Windows XP Status: NEW Severity: normal Priority: P3 Component: cdt-doc AssignedTo: cdt-doc-inbox@xxxxxxxxxxx ReportedBy: martin.oberhuber@xxxxxxxxxxxxx QAContact: doug.schaefer@xxxxxxxxxxxxx CC: wayne@xxxxxxxxxxx, eclipse.org-architecture- council@xxxxxxxxxxx Depends on: 246945 Created an attachment (id=129207) --> (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/attachment.cgi?id=129207) Screenshot of relevant CDT user docs CDT build ID: 5.1m4 (126.96.36.199812171517) In the CDT User doc's "Before you begin" section, there are hyperlinks which directly point to downloadable artifacts (.EXE, .tar.gz) that are under GPL. See attached screenshot. It is my understanding of the policy on http://wiki.eclipse.org/Links_to_non-eclipse.org_content which is linked from http://wiki.eclipse.org/Development_Resources#Committers_and_The_Eclipse.Org_Website that this is forbidden. That policy only talks about the website, but I seem to remember that we also need to be careful with hyperlinks that are part of the packages / products that we deliver from Eclipse.org. If that were not the case, wouldn't we also be allowed to have URLs to external p2 repositories embedded into our features? Wayne, can you clarify the policy or point to a place where this is described? -- 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.
