I think e-mail reply would be long,

and I will need to address comments anyway,

so I respond via a Gerrit change [1].

Why do you say that vpp_papi need to be dual licensed?

First draft created [0] for the change that will switch

licenses for Python files used together with Scapy.

 

For some files, I was not sure whether they are used together with Scapy.

One big detail is that vpp_papi needs to have dual license,

as test framework integrates with it (and with scapy).

If I understand the licensing logic correctly,

CSIT tests can still choose to use vpp_papi under Apache license option.

But we may need to discuss that with lawyers.

 

Ray, you may need to upgrade your contributor-finding shell pipeline

to cover all files I added the new license into.
