[Bug inetlib/31387] New: COPYING file wrong for activation, mail and inetlib
29 Mar 2007 06:15:32 -0000
The current COPYING file for activation contains the LGPL
The current COPYING file for mail and inetlib contain the GPL
On http://www.gnu.org/software/classpathx/ is written:
JavaBeans™ Activation Framework: GPL + library exception.
JavaMail: GPL + library exception.
Further more, I scanned all java source files of the three
projects. Each java source file contains the the GPL license notice with this
"As a special exception, if you link this library with other files to
produce an executable, this library does not by itself cause the
resulting executable to be covered by the GNU General Public License.
This exception does not however invalidate any other reasons why the
executable file might be covered by the GNU General Public License."
, except these files in the mail sources:
2. source/gnu/mail/providers/smtp/SMTPTransport.java, and
(1) is without any license notice, (2) and (3) mention the LGPL.
I think the COPYING files should contain the GPL with the library exception.
