Subject Licensing odma.h (was RE: Some more strange files in the OOo code - the Ghost of ODMA Past)
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2011 02:20:13 GMT
The ODMA Support showed up in the Novell editions of

I don't think the copyright notice in odma.h should be a problem. What is missing is any additional
information about the license.  Also not sure why you need it if there is no code that uses
it in the base distribution.

If you want, I am sure I can make an updated version of the file, clear it with Betsy Fanning
at AIIM (although that BSD-style license is meant to apply to all current code), and post
an updated odma.h on the web site.

Is that useful or would I be wasting my time?

  as far as I can tell LibreOffice does include ODMA support (the code 
from ucb module plus patches here and there, inluding special file 
dialogs and the like), vanilla as it can be downloaded 
from definitely never did. The former speaks for 
not completely removing ODMA files, just to "ban" odma.h from the ucb 
source module.

  I agree that improving WebDAV and introducing CMIS support should have 
higher priority than fixing ODMA.
