Re: [ee4j-community] Retaining History for incoming EE4J Projects

I think Mike has a point here. If the due diligence is not done then it would be technically possible for someone (in future) to make a release (say, for the sake of maintenance) by declaring a dependency on an older version of the code. And since the older version is not completely vetted, the release might end up having license/copyright issues.

 

Besides, I have some bandwidth to spare. If its purely a time, effort or resource issue then I think it would be a good opportunity to call for volunteers from the community and see if the existing teams can be augmented to meet the resource demands during this transition process.

P.S. I have already accepted the ECA and do not anticipate any issues in getting other relevant paperwork processed.

Because that's not how it works....

 

Like every large company we have ever worked with, before Oracle

contributes any code to any open source foundation they have a process

to follow. (Scanning code, reviewing copyright headers, checking license

compatibility, etc.)

 

Before the Eclipse Foundation accepts significant code contributions to

its projects, we have a process that we follow. (Scanning code,

reviewing copyright headers, checking license compatibility, etc.)

 

As I said: real time, effort, and resources are required to move the

history.
