Subject Re: Streams dependency on RocksDB - licenses
Date Thu, 21 Sep 2017 15:21:09 GMT
LevelDB is New BSD (and the license in the first commit you linked to is
definitely not GPL2):

https://github.com/google/leveldb/blob/master/LICENSE

The second commit you referenced, adds GPL2 to the list of licenses in the
pom, but it's not clear why.
