Re: [orbit-dev] How to contribute LGPL-licensed third party library to Orbit?

JavaBDD was approved by the Eclipse Board of Directors for use specifically (and exclusively) by the Eclipse ESCET project.

Unfortunately, this means that it can't be put into Eclipse Orbit.

Do you have a motivation beyond good housekeeping for putting this content in Orbit?

Hi all,

I'm trying to contribute JavaBDD to Eclipse Orbit. See CQ 22696 (

I'm following the same steps as for XChart and Java Diff Utils that I contributed earlier to Eclipse Orbit.

I'm running into some issue since this is an LGPL-licensed library. When trying to do a build I get:

None of the listed licenses is 'GNU Library General Public License v2 or later', 'LGPL-2.0-or-later' or something similar.

What can I do to resolve this?
