Re: [epl-discuss] Draft changes
Switching from "module" to "file"
addresses my first technology related concern.
In its simplest form, my other proposal
just changes "object code form" to "executable form".
There are additional questions about how we define and clarify those terms,
but that could be addressed in an FAQ rather than the license text itself.
I wouldn't have thought it necessary
to clarify that subclasses are not derivative works, but recent unrelated
discussions have taught me otherwise. The clarification makes sense to
me. The term is technology specific and doesn't cover prototypal inheritance

P.S. John Arthorne, I am still interested in looking at your proposed changes,
but they seemed like they required more thought and drafting care than
this initial set.

I took a stab at some changes to the EPL for people to review and comment
on. You can see them at .
The changes made included:
"module" to "file".
use of the definition of "Derivative Work" from the Apache License,
plus the addition of the phrase "or subclass".
the last paragraph of the license which has the effect of:
the choice of law provision
the stipulation of no jury trial
the stipulation that no action can occur if the cause of the action is
more than one year ago
Your comments and suggestions would be appreciated!
