Review MySQL connector license

Reported by: Matthäus Wander Owned by: coredevs
Priority: Must have Milestone:
Component: General Keywords:


CT2 includes a MySQL connector which is licensed under GPLv2 and as such would require CT2 to be GPL'ed as well. However, the MySQL connectors are also licensed under a Oracle’s Free and Open Source Software ("FOSS") License Exception which seems to allow inclusion in an Apache licensed open source software. One should review the FOSS license terms in detail and deduce which actions (if any) need to be done for CT2 in order to comply with it.

Thanks, Lorenz, for pointing this out.
