Re: Voting on the Scapy licensing resolutions

Hi Ray,

Can I ask a clarification question?
Only the copyright holder can modify a distribution license whereas it looks like the TSC is going to act 
as a copyright holder's proxy. Is this correct?

Thanks
Best
Luca

Hi folks,

 

So we need to take a vote on the proposed Scapy licensing resolutions at today TSC.

 

That is we …

 

1. We approve of the mitigations listed in last Thursday’s presentation.

 

  1. Explicit licensing of affected code as GPLv2 (CSIT, VPP & TRex)
  2. Moving affected code to a GPL labelled directory (CSIT).
  3. Preservation of project apache licensing through process separation (CSIT, VPP & TRex).

 

2. We approve these exceptions to the FD.io Project Apache2 Licensing for CSIT, VPP & TRex.

 

Proposed vote text:

 

Based on the mitigation described. The FD.io TSC approves exceptions to the FD.io Project Apache2 licensing permitting the use of Scapy by CSIT, VPP & TRex.

 

Any comments on the above are welcome.

 

Thanks,
