Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-15874) Add Bouncy Castle License
Date Tue, 23 Oct 2018 18:37:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-15874?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16661101#comment-16661101

Robert Kanter commented on HADOOP-15874:

It looks like the license was the same in the previous (really really old) version of BouncyCastle
that we were using:

HADOOP-15832 added the bcpkix artifact (we used to only have the bcprov artifact) and maybe
that's what triggered this?  It looks like it's only complaining about that artifact.  

As [~stevel@apache.org] said, the license, which applies to both artifacts, is mentioned in
the NOTICE.txt.  
And as for ASF compatibility, the Bouncy Castle License is identical to the MIT license (not
sure why they didn't just use MIT), so it should be fine.

> Shall we seek Apache Software Foundation's legal advice? Per ASF legal, Bouncy Castle
is not listed as an includable license: https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved#category-a
> Not sure why it only surfaced in Hadoop trunk (aka branch 3.3) since Bouncy Castle was
included long time ago. Maybe a recent change made by [~rkanter] in YARN-8857 updated the
version and changed the license?
