Re: [epl-discuss] Next Round of Proposed Revisions to the EPL

Hi, Mike - thanks for sharing, and congrats on the progress.

One quick comment- the definition of Modified Form reads to me like it is missing a word?

"shall mean any work, in Source or Executable Code from an addition to, deletion from, or modification of the contents of the Program,"

any work _taken_ from? _resulting_ from? (MPL uses resulting from; not great but it seemed best after we'd discarded all other options.)

Less substantively important, but judging from uses in other contexts, the draft tends to say "Executable Code form", not just naked "Executable Code", so maybe also a missing "form"?

This has taken far too long, but this morning I posted the next round of proposed revisions to the EPL.

You can find the new version on GitHub here, HTML preview here, with the changes shown here.

For those who prefer, please find attached a PDF with the redlines.

The main revisions were as follows:

  • changed the defined term from "Derivative Work" to "Modified Work" to make it clearer that it is a defined term.
  • added definitions for Source Code and Executable Code.
  • changed the definition of Modified Work to (hopefully) be more precise.
I look forward to your feedback. In particular, defining derivative works is a big change. We definitely want to make sure we get that right.

Thanks in advance.
