Subject GStreamer avmedia plugin as copyleft?
Date Tue, 04 Oct 2011 15:27:28 GMT
Hi there,

The GStreamer avmedia plugin is disabled when copyleft is disabled (the
default in AOOo).
I cannot understand why this is treated as copy-left code. The plugin
was developed by Oracle and is on the software grant; building it only
requires system headers and linking against system libraries. 
In this sense, the code is just like the VCL GTK and KDE plugins, and the GTK
and KDE file pickers... these are not disabled as copy-left code.

So, is this code copy-left code? Does building and shipping the pulgin
break some Apache licensing rule?
