Subject: [winery-dev] Switch from EPLv1 to EPLv2

Dear Winery developers and community,

Eclipse Public License Version 2.0 was approved by OSI and Eclipse
Foundation Board of Directors. See

It has been modernized. For me, the most important change is that is is not
required any more that each contributor has to be listed in each class file
he contributed. (The sentence "Each Contributor must identify itself as the
originator of its Contribution, if any, in a manner that reasonably allows
subsequent Recipients to identify the originator of the Contribution." was
removed). So, this makes it easier to fulfill the formal requirements to
contribute to Winery.

The switch procedure is outlined by Wayne as follows:


Basically, a project can use the new version by simply updating the file
headers and notices. Note that it would be good community practice to
discuss this change on your public mailing lists, and to make every attempt
to ensure that downstream users are aware of the change.


So, I just wanted to ask if there are concerns regarding this switch.
If yes, please show up here or contact me privately.
