Re: [jgit-dev] license question

Hi Chris,

Yes that helps. Does it also mean that the README is incorrect?

The README at the root of the git repo states that jgit is licensed under BSD. However the license in the about.html in org.eclipse.jgit is for the EDL. The top level LICENSE file also refers to the EDL. Can you clarify what license is correct for the org.eclipse.jgit plugin?

JGit is licensed under the EDL:

It's a New BSD style license (remember that the BSD license is really a template).

EGit and almost all projects are licensed under the traditional Eclipse Public License (EPL). JGit is a bit special that it is the only project at that I believe is licensed fully under the EDL.

Does that help?
