Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Hosting Kraken maven artifacts in incubator-metron git repo
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2017 23:35:11 GMT
Perhaps it would be more appropriate to put it under https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/metron/
, perhaps as https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/metron/mvn-repo ?

We should not host anything with a license that isn’t compatible with inclusion in an Apache
project.  If we post only non-source artifacts, then that would include packages with “Category
B List” licenses (that is, ‘"WEAK COPYLEFT" LICENSES’) as well as “Category A List”
licenses (those “SIMILAR IN TERMS TO THE APACHE LICENSE 2.0”) -- per  https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved
.  For versioning, we could simply structure as a maven repo, and in fact that’s what I
think we should do.

Hosting the source code is not, I think, something we are supposed to do for non-Apache projects:
https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved again, this time the very first question:

    CAN ASF PMCS HOST PROJECTS THAT ARE NOT UNDER THE APACHE LICENSE?
    No. See the Apache Software Foundation licenses page for more details, and the Apache
Software Foundation page for additional background.

    No, we can't host artifacts in a git repo, or on a website. It would be
    like distributing a release that hasn't been voted upon.
    
    Regarding message threading, in Gmail adding a [tag] to the subject does
    not create a new thread. So the change is not visible in my mailbox unless
    the rest of the subject is changed as well.
