Perhaps someone could open a bug and explain what you think the issue is? (I don't mean right away necessarily. Actually shipping Helios is way more important for the time being.) > > I do realize that the SUA talks a lot about the EPL as the default license. But that is actually by design and an accurate reflection of Eclipse's projects. There is a lot of legal stuff at Eclipse that is hanging off the phrase "Unless otherwise indicated,..." at the beginning of the "Applicable Licenses" section. > >  https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=306627 Mike, I think our only real issue is that the SUA doesn't mention the EDL as one of the alternative licences that content might be covered under. It lists out other licenses like Apache 2.0, but it fails to list the foundation's own other license, the EDL. :-) Its a minor change, but one we would like to see considered for the Helios+1 release train, if possible. > Mike Milinkovich > Office: +1.613.224.9461 x228 > Mobile: +1.613.220.3223 > mike.milinkovich@xxxxxxxxxxx > > > > -----Original Message----- > > From: Content-filter at foundation.eclipse.org > > [mailto:postmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Chris Aniszczyk > > Sent: June-07-10 8:28 PM > > To: Shawn O.
