Questions about copyright holders of JIDE OSS

Postby apoleon » Sun Mar 17, 2013 10:06 am

Hello,

as part of the packaging process for Debian, i had to make a complete license audit for JIDE OSS. I'm concerned about the following files and their license headers. Perhaps someone can clarify whether the persons / organizations hold any copyright for JIDE OSS and if it differs from the general license, GPL-2 with classpath excecption.

Can you confirm that all these copyright holders have agreed to make their code available under the GPL-2 with classpath exception?

The first set are a few files that we copied from OpenJDK (same license as we are using) and then we modified it for our purpose.

The second set is two files from Quaqua which is BSD license so we can use it.

The last one is a mistake. We wrote the file and we owned the copyright. I just updated it and checked in.
