|[wtp-pmc] Rolling out Parallel IP Approvals for Incubating Projects|
Many of you will have seen Mike’s blog regarding parallel IP approvals for Incubating Projects at Eclipse. This process will clearly benefit Incubating Projects in that they will now be able to proceed with development activity while due diligence is completed in parallel. Practically speaking, this is what the rollout looks like:
If you feel that your project is compliant though not identified as such, please send an email to emo@xxxxxxxxxxx to let us know.
To help us mitigate the risk that a package may later be rejected, please do take the time to flush out your requirements. We’ll need an IPBug for each nested jar file that you need to use as we need to look at them separately and they may have different licenses that apply to them. We will be relying on your assessment of the license that applies to your requirement in our initial review, so take care in that determination. Also, if a package is being re-licensed under a license that is acceptable to Eclipse (e.g. a change from GPL to EPL), please ask if each author who wrote the original code consented to the change in license.
If you have questions related to this process, please post them to this bug that I have created to consolidate discussion on this topic.
