      Description

      5 process doc, line 6 standing rules - Should be some form of Creative Commons license, as default copyright requires license for redistribution, modification, etc.

      PC> This is a normative document. It makes no sense to use a copyright that allows people to modify it at will.

      SS> not about modification, it's about being able to distribute and quote without fear of charges of copyright infringement

        I've deferred this, on the grounds that all license-related matters - except for the requirement to disclose - are out of bounds for this JSR and can only be dealt with by a JSR that modifies the JSPA.

        Pity, having them be Creative Commons licensed would be a big plus.

        This is losely related to JSR358-49, assuming, Sean referred to the "Spec License" with "doc license".
        One or the other Spec Lead expressed the desire to relicense the "docs" (everything so far considered to be part of the "Spec" under different licenses if hosted by different forges or servers.

        Should be possible to clarify with Oracle Legal.

        Comment [ A suggestion made several years ago by a Sun lawyer:

        Change the definition of Output from:

        "the Specification and associated Reference Implementation and Technology Compatibility Kit generated by an Expert Group with respect to the JSR for which that Expert Group is formed."

        to:

        "the Specification and associated Reference Implementation and Technology Compatibility Kit generated by an Expert Group, *in any pre-final as well as final forms*, with respect to the JSR for which that Expert Group is formed." ]

        Sean was specifically addressing the fact that the Process Document is copyrighted by Oracle, and asking whether this permitted distribution. That is something that should be clarified and if necessary addressed.

        I have reworded the issue to make this clear.

        His reference to "modification" was simply misleading.
