Re: [Fwd: [ #1107] gnome account]

Behdad Esfahbod approved the import of the LSR project into with our explicit statement that it is currently
licensed under the Common Public License. There was no indication
expressed to us at the time that using the CPL would be a problem. Is
this now an issue?

If so, please advise ASAP since LSR is already in CVS, already has a
first release at, and
has public pages at

Let's not even risk putting GNOME in a legal 'situation'. or get our
sysadmins sucked into legal dilemmas we're not qualified or inclined to
consider! Let's just stick to the rules here for now - no exceptions
reqd. IMHO, IBM must publicly release a tarball, which expressly states
it's license as (L)GPL before it can be accepted by GNOME.

It should be Peter's responsibility as a GNOME CVS account holder not to
import any code before it meets the requirements. In the unlikely event
that Peter is found to have broken this rule at any point, his account
will be suspended and any modules he maintains removed from public CVS.
If in any doubt, Peter should probably bring it up for open discussion
on gnome-infrastructure gnome org or something first.

That seems to be the path of least resistance to me. Any better
suggestions welcome, but it's Kurt's call at the end of the day ;^P
