Re: Apache license or Cyberneko license?


If anyone is interested, i sent this question to licensing AT gnu DOT org:


> My special exception uses the wording "the Apache license".
> Would i have to change this special exception, and what wording would you recommend to allow for "Apache-style" licenses?


And i got this answer:


> Something like "any license with terms identical to the % Apache license version 1.1 but for names" ought to do it.

Here are a few relevent links for you:

Note: The CyberNeko license is based on the Apache version 1.1 license.

Re: Apache license or Cyberneko license?
To be more specific, i'm working for a company which is looking to GPL our software. We are using a couple of Apache libraries, which are under the Apache license.
Therefore we include a GPL "special exception" which allows linking with software licensed under "The Apache License".
Since CyberNeko is under an Apache-style license, but not "The" Apache License, this special exception would not include the CyberNeko License, right?

The CyberNeko license is an Apache-style license. In other words, the wording is exactly the same but the project is not associated with the Apache Software Foundation. So you can use NekoHTML with the same freedom that you use Apache-based software.

Apache license or Cyberneko license?
Which is it? The Apache license or the Cyberneko license? My GPL project with special exception for the Apache license can't use the Cyberneko license, right?
