Re: [p2-dev] Pack200 compression

Thanks Daniel and Mickael,

Please also ask about the legality of using the GPL2 licensed tests currently in OpenJDK to test the implementation, they won't be distributed as part of a library release, used only for testing. These will be jtreg tests, the tests could be distributed separately as a test compatiblity kit under the GPL license with classpath exception.

I think if Legal do find issues, there's a better chance Oracle will listen to an organisation like Eclipse (rather than a few individual developers) and possibly be prepared to donate the standard and tck to Eclipse.

    definitely go by the legal team.

I think the legal audit should even happen before starting any further development on this topic. Because if legal can say now that it's not allowed, then there is not much more to discuss and it will be a good hint for Peter about what to (not) do and expect with his project. @Daniel: would you mind contacting EMO Legal asking them about this and sharing the answer here?
