Subject Your project uses a possibly LGPL dependency: com.icegreen.greenmail:greenmail
Date Sat, 12 Jul 2014 19:36:56 GMT
Hi, my name is Steve Rowe, and I'm a member of the Apache Lucene PMC.

We recently discovered that the "greenmail" Java library, which declares
its license as ASLv2 in its POM and elsewhere, has LGPL license headers in
its source code files.  In response the Lucene project reverted a recent
commit containing this depedency.

I conducted a survey of current Apache releases and found that four Apache
projects include source code that links to the "greenmail" library:
Syncope, OODT, Oozie and Geronimo.  Additionally, Axis2 has a Maven POM
that includes a "greenmail" dependency, though I couldn't find any current
releases containing this dependency.  Details are posted on <>; I would appreciate your
project's involvement.

An issue was filed with the greenmail project on Sourceforge earlier this
year asking for clarification <>,
but there has been no response on that issue, or any other issue, for that
matter - the project may be dead, as it has seen no activity for some time.
