Trent and I have been discussing the license issues of the
JSR spec and code that we develop, as a community.
Here is what we have come up with:
>During the development, the new JSR spec that we derive
>covered under the LGPL license. Since it is
>just interfaces, any contributions will come back to me, for inclusion
>into the specification. The goal is to provide a detailed set of
>document the present state of our reference model. I am using
>the RXTX as the reference model. If there is something missing from
>the reference model, or if the reference model has something that should
>not be there, we will need to discuss it.
>After Sun accepts the JSR, I, as the copyright holder, can issue
>a version with a JSR compatible license.
>The goal is to migrate the interfaces into javax.comm.
Does this sound like a reasonable plan to everyone?
