For clarity's sake I'd suggest one is picked. Dealing with projects that have mixed licences - even the best intentions - can be a real pain. Anyone who has any sort of IP agreement with their employer will probably have rules about the sorts of project they can be involved in and that usually comes down to what licence is being used
Multiple licences makes the sign off increasing hard.

I agree with Martijn. This definitely seems the most reasonable way to manage the licensing issues.

Hi all,

Apologies for the delay - I've actually got a bit of a background in this (advised several corporates on licenses as a non-lawyer).  I want to make sure I'm careful about what I say and I also have Devoxx UK to run next week, so it might be a few days yet.  In short my guiding principles are:

* If contributing to an existing RI or TCK for a JSR or OpenJDK, use their license (nothing else really makes sense here, its more or less a hard requirement).
* If simply contributing something else to Adopt OpenJDK / Adopt a JSR - use a license that is as permissive as possible - "If I dropped this on the street anyone could pick it up and use it" license.

*VERY* happy to hear other people's opinions on these principles before I draft a more formal proposal.


Cheers,
Martijn

Could we use the lessons/discussions we had last year about licenses for our OpenJDK programs?

Well Adopt a JSR not strictly so, as it's mailing Java EE 7 work, so a good default license is to chose the license of the RI for that JSR.

Makes sense. But at least one license needs to be added to evict any future problems, right ?
