The Eclipse software does not require the third party software to be present. If the third party software happens to be present, the Eclipse software may call or invoke it. Example: If a web browser is present, clicking on URL's in Eclipse will cause the user's configured web browser to open the URL. or ii. The Eclipse software is designed to work with multiple third party software choices that provide similar functionality - the choice of which to use is up to the user. At least one of those must be a prerequisite (see below) or approved by the EMO for distribution by the project. Example: If a project requires a persistence mechanism, it can allow the user to select from several different implementations. = = = = = = = Also does nnt sound like an "exempt prereq", from same document: = = = = = a. A prerequisite may be classified as "exempt" by the EMO if the software is pervasive in nature, expected to be already on the user's machine, and/or an IP review would be either impossible, impractical, or inadvisable. Exempt prerequisites can be approved for use by the EMO without IP review. Examples: Windows XP, Sun JRE. However, an exempt prerequisite may be disallowed by the EMO at its discretion. = = = = = = = Or, I should say, if it is an "exempt-prepreq", it would be due to "an IP review would be either impossible, impractical, or inadvisable. " = = = = = = = = Otherwise, it'd just installing something "under the covers" ... but users should still know about it, probably be presented with "license" for acceptance, etc. I've no idea of it's size, etc., but ideally would not be "impossible, impractical, or inadvisable". We'll see what IP staff says ... but, at least has a compatible license (i.e. not GPL). -- Configure CQmail: http://dev.eclipse.org/ipzilla/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: ------- You are on the CC list for the CQ.
