Subject Re: Manual generation questions
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 06:26:21 GMT
Are you saying that the karaf pdf manual is intended to be generated by non-commercial-licensed
prince xml?  That is definitely still a licensed copy of prince xml, and as I said, I don't
think the license conditions would be ok for distributing the result from apache.

I also don't think that running the build should require manually downloading a commercial
product.  If there's some way to make it ok to distribute the manual can we at least make
it so that you need to specify a profile to generate the pdf?

If PDF documents are sent as email attachments by Licensee, all email messages must contain
the www.princexml.com Web address in the message body.

 Does someone? Are there instructions somewhere?
